Delhi Monuments


Qutab Minar
An Indo-Islamic architectural wonder,this magnificent monument stands on one side of the Qutab complex. Also known as the Victory Tower, the Qutab Minar was begun in 1199 by Qutub-ud-din Aibak and was completed by his successors. This elegant fluted tower is decorated with elegant balconies and carving. Other monuments here include the Quwwat-Ul- Islam mosque – built from the dressed and carved stones of demolished temples, and the famous Iron Pillar. A metallurgical marvel, this pillar has not rusted in over fifteen hundred years despite the vagaries of the weather.
