Qutub Minar - the 2nd tallest minar in India

. Qutb Minar and Alai Darwaza (Alai Gate), the entrance to the Quwwat-Ul-Islam Mosque.Mughals have been known for their motivational and astounding architecture and construction of huge complexes that strike a spell bound aura. Qutab Minar is one such structure that holds unique magnificence and aura and known for the grandeur. The structure was inspired by the very well-known Minaret of Jam, which is located in Afghanistan. The great Mughal ruler Qutub-ud-Din Aibak made up his mind to construct higher structure than the Minaret of Jam. The construction of Qutab Minar began in the year 1193. However, the structure remained incomplete due to death of Qutub-ud-Din Aibak, but quite soon; the work was re-started by his descendant Iltutmish and later put to completion by Firoz Shah Tughlaq. The Minaret when built was 72.5 meters high and was constructed as the victory tower.

Qutb Minar, also written as Qutub Minar or Qutab Minar, is the 2nd tallest minar in India.Iltutmish was the son in law of Qutub-ud-din Aibak, and his tomb was constructed in 1235 AD. The entire structure is constructed from the red sandstone and it significantly shows up uniquely designed and constructed Arabic architectural patterns. The tomb originally lie under the dome, but at present consists of three mehrabs situated on the western side prominently used for the purpose of offering the prayers.

The Alai Minar is a 25 meters tall structure constructed by Mughal ruler Alaud-Din-Khlji. The purpose was to construct the Minar, which was double the height of Qutab Minar. However, the plan came to abrupt end after the sudden death of Alaud-Din-Khlji.

The imprinted stones and slabs used for purpose of construction seem to have been taken from theremnants of 27 temples in Qila Rai Pithora. The elusive and intricate brocade carvings that decorate the structure appreciate and inspire the awe of tourists.

The 7.2 meters. high iron pillar, lying in the vicinity of the Quwwat-ul-Islam, is of the 4th century. It was originally thought to be constructed on the hillock for marking the respect to Lord Vishnu. In actuality, the pillar was transported to Delhi by Tomar king Anangpal. One of the key features of iron pillar is its resistance to the rust. Despite the very fact that it is open for more than 16 centuries, the pillar has anti rust properties.
