Description

'Work on the Qutb Minar, one of Delhiaas most famous landmarks, was begun in 1199. It was built by Qutb-ud-din Aibak (or Aybak) as a victory tower to celebrate the Muslim dominance of Delhi and the surrounding area. The Qutb Minaraas fluted red sandstone tower rises to a height of 72.5 metres and is covered with intricate carvings and verses from the Koran in the Kufic style of calligraphy. Only the first storey was completed in Qutb-ud-din Aibakaas reign, the remaining four being built by his successor Iltutmish. The final storey was restored by Firoz Shah in 1369 using marble to face the red sandstone.'
