a tour with friends
We had our second terminal holidays. We made use of these vacations to see places of historical importance with our teacher. We hired a bus. First we went to the Qutb. It is now a building of five stories. Two of its upper stories had been brought down. It was built by QUTD-UD-DIN, the first slave king of India. We admired the architectural beauty of the building. We went up the highest story and watched how the people below looked small like dwarfs. We also saw the iron pillar nearby. It is known as King Chandra’s pillar. It is more than two thousand years old. Next we went to see the carvings of Hindu gods and goddesses on stone slabs. We were really surprised to see the wooden slabs changing into stone.
From the Qutb we went to Tughlagabd. Here an old city of Delhi, founded by Tughalq Kings, was once situated. Now it lies in ruins. Then we proceeded to Hauz Khas which were the residence of kings. We relaxed for some time in the green lawns. We have our lunch here and refreshed ourselves with tea. my all friends
