Brother and Sister at The Qutub Minar in Delhi, India

I had a wonderful visit yesterday to this minaret in Delhi, not sure I've ever seen a minaret before :-) The ruins around it were well kept and a popular spot visited by many locals and tourists alike on this beautiful day. 
My favorite part was watching the people enjoying their Saturday outing, and seeing families getting along so well. These 2 young ones were so expressive and I loved this series that told a story of a moment between brother and sister that I didn't think just one photo could do!

Just look at her little face, precious!

And this is what finally caught their attention, the Qutub Minar!

From good old Wikipedia:

The Qutub Minar  is a minaret that forms a part of the Qutab complex, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the Mehrauli area of DelhiIndia.

Qutab Ud-Din-Aibak, founder of the Delhi Sultanate, started construction of the Qutub Minar's first storey around 1192. In 1220, Aibak's successor and son-in-law Iltutmish completed a further three storeys. In 1369, a lightning strike destroyed the top storey. Firoz Shah Tughlaq replaced the damaged storey, and added one more.Sher Shah suri also added an entrance to this tower while he was ruling and Humayun was at an exile.
