Around 3 pm, we all move towards the one & only qutub minaar. Here we seen the photography gallary by Benoy K Behl. The title of this gallary was The Monasteries of Rinchen Zangpo.

Qutub minar in red & buff standstone is the highest tower in India. It has a dia of 14.32m @ the base and about 2.75m on the top with a height of 72.5m

Qutb-u’d-Din Aibak laid down the foundation of Qutub Minar in AD 1199. The minar was said to have been built to celebrate the victory of Mohanned Gouri, the invader from Afgan, over the Rajputs in 1192.

Alau’d-Din Khalji commenced Ala’I Minar, which stands to the north of Kutub-Minar, with the intention of making it twice the size of earlier minar. He could only the first storey, which now has an extant height of 25 m. The other remains in the Qutub complex xomprise madrasa, graves, tombs, mosque & architectural members.

Quwwat-ul-Islam Mosque, to the northeast of minar was built by Qutbu’dd-Din Aibak in AD 1198. It is the earliest mosque built by the Delhi Sultans. It consists of a rectangular courtyard enclosed by cloisters, erected with the carved columns & architectural members of 27 Hindu & Jain temples, which were demolished by Qutbu’d-Din Aibak as recorded in his inscription on the main eastern entrance.

The complex is listed as a UNESCO world heritage site & is one of the most popular tourist spot.
