ABOUT Qutub Minar
Think Delhi and you’re probably thinking about Mughal emperors. However, the pre-Mughal dynasties also left behind a mark on the scene of architecture and a the Qutub Minar complex stands tall as an evidence of this. The most outstanding structure here is the Qutub Minar, a huge brick minaret, the tallest of its kind in the world.

Built by Qutub-ud-din Aibak and Iltutmish, it’s a pity that visitors are not allowed to climb the stairs inside the minaret, which lead right to the top of the structure to a height of some 72 metres. At the base of the minar is the Quwwat-ul-Islam Masjid. Another curiosity-inducing piece of architecture here is the Iron Pillar. This 7 metre high pillar has withstood elements of nature over centuries and has an interesting legend behind it.

Few ppl know that Sultan Alauddin Khilji wanted to build a tower more majestic than the Qutub Minar and started constructing another tower bang opposite it. The base of this minaret was raised to only 12 meters when he died but the rubble and masonry of the structure can still be seen, in fact, you can walk up its incline. Had it been built, the new tower would have been at least twice the height and size!
