The Qutub Minar is a magnificent 73 meter high tower, which was built by Qutb-ud-Din Aiyab in 1193. After the defeat of Delhi’s last Hindu ruler, this tower was built to control the Muslims in Delhi. This tower is India’s tallest tower, full of five stories and a balcony to be installed. The first three floors of the Qutub Minar are made of red bead and the last two are made of marble and sandstone.
The construction work of the Qutub Minar was started by Qutb-ud-Din Aiyabak, but he only built the basement. Tower construction was later undertaken by his successor, Iltutmish who created three other stories. From the time of the Tuolmak’s time from the last two-storey Feroz Shah Tughlaq IQQ, different styles are clearly seen in the Qutub Minar.
In addition to the tower, the Quetta-Yus-Islam mosque (the first mosque to be built in India) in the Qutub Minar complex, a 7 meter high iron pillar, the grave of Iltutmish, Ala-Darwaza and Alla ‘I Minar.
