Qutab Minar is one of the most recognizable medieval structures in the city of Delhi. The tall minaret was constructed in 1192 by Qutab-ud-din Aibak, and later completed by his successor Iltutmish. The soaring conical tower is an exquisite example of Indo-Islamic Afghan architecture.

  • I like starting interesting stuff - @GoUNESCO and Go Heritage Runs recently - @tripnaksha earlier. I once hitchhiked in the north-east of India for a month on a budget of Rs. 221 per day. Marathoner.
