The Qutub Minar is a Great Example of Structural Prowess of the Era Gone by. Looking at the structure itself one wonders as to how artisans and skilled workers of that era may have surpassed all obstacles to take the structure to such heights without the use of mechanized lifts, scaffolding's, or the like. The structure mesmerizes whosoever looks at... More

Qutb al-Din Aibak, founder of the Delhi Sultanate, started construction of the Qutub Minar's first storey around 1192. In 1220, Aibak's successor and son-in-law Iltutmish completed a further three storeys. In 1369, lightning struck the top storey, destroying it. Beautiful place to spend around.
