FAU Research Group is Visiting India [02/2017]

In February 2017, representatives of the FAU research group visited IITD (Indian Institute of Technology Delhi) to participate in the lecture series called “Multiscale and Multiphysics – Challenges in Continuum Mechanics” with their Indian colleagues.

Apart from the scientific exchange, some cultural exchange and sightseeing took place as well. They visited Taj Mahal, Humayun’s Tomb, Red Fort, Qutb Minar, and the National Museum. Taj Mahal is a mausoleum that was completed in 1653. It became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983 for being a significant masterpiece of Muslim art and is a symbol of India’s diverse cultural history. Humayun’s Tomb was built by Persian architects. Red Fort plays a significant role on the Independence day of India. Qutb Minar is the minaret of a ruined mosque. Inscriptions tell us that this mosque was built with the material of 27 Hindu and Jain temples that were torn down. All of these sites have been declared UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The National Museum, on the other hand, has one of India’s largest collections of prehistoric articles and modern art.
