Last month I visited the famous Deccan fort which is not very far from my home. I enjoyed both trekking and photography that day. I clicked the famous minar from every angle which is located inside the fortified area.
A Brief Introduction
Chand Minar is at Daulatabad. It was built in the Turkish style in 1435 by Ala-ud-din Bahmani to celebrate his occupation of the fort. This minaret is an outstanding example of Islamic art.
This 30-metre high tower is divided into four storeys. It has 24 chambers and a small mosque at its base. It is covered with the Persian blue tiles that make the Chand Minar outstanding.
Path passes bastions; studded gates, a drawbridge and the Chini Mahal, where Abdul Hasan Tana Shah, the last King of Golconda, was imprisoned in 1687 for 13 years are the important attractions of the tomb. There is also a 6.6m long ‘Kila Shikan’ (Fort Breaker) iron cannon on the bastion. source: Maharashtratourism.net
