Qutab Minar

visit Qutab Minar

The Afghan-style monument anchors one of the most precious historical complexes in New Delhi. It soars to the Indian skies with attested glory. A trophy of the unrivaled general Qutb-ud-din Aibak’s endeavor to commemorate his victories, Qutab Minar has been a symbolic structure for the capital since early 12th century. UNESCO declared it a World Heritage Site in 1993, and now it is even more popular among travelers with its cultural and historical value attested worldwide.

The structure is one of the oldest examples of a minaret separate from a mosque. It is a style that became widespread in India only in the 17th century. In that way, it is recognized as the most distinct and ideal embodiment of Islamic and South Asian architectural fusion. The minaret’s religious importance manifests itself in the verses of the Quran carved on the rosy bricks. And although slightly disordered, they add to its picture-perfect beauty seen from a distance. There are five stories to this 72-meter high tower featuring semicircular pilasters and balconies. The high-contrast and ornate look of Qutab Minar results from this intricate design, and it lives up to its exalted renown perfectly as a popular site for photography.
