Qutub Minar, New Delhi
Located 15 km south of New Delhi, Qutub Minar was built by Qutub-Ud-Din-Aibak in the year 1199.

The monument was built to give calls for prayer - Mu'azzin. Qutub-Ud-Din-Aibak's successor and his son-in-law Shamsu'd-Din IItutmish added three more storeys to the monument subsequently.

Built with red and buff sandstone, Qutub Minar is the highest tower in India. It has a diameter of 14.32m at the base and about 2.75m on the top and a height of 72.5m.

The north-east gateway of the monument houses Quwwat-ul-Islam Mosque built by Qutbu'd-Din Aibak and the southern gateway houses Quwwat-ul-Islam mosque constructed by Alau'd-Din Khalji. Qutub Minar complex also houses the tomb of IItutmish - a plain square chamber built with red sandstone.

With intention of building a bigger minar, Alau'd-Din Khalji commenced the construction of Ala'i Minar to the north of Qutub-Minar. He, however, could complete only the first storey which is 25 meters high.
