Synopsis

Percy Brown calls Qutub minar as “One of the most remarkable architectural monuments ever produced”.

Once the epic center of Lal kot, first of the seven major cities of Delhi, The Qutub Minar, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, has never lost its importance and still attracts thousands of visitors everyday. Qutubu’d-din Aibak, favourite slave and army commander of Muhammad Ghur of Afghanistan, captured Delhi in 1206 and declared himself the first Sultan of the Slave dynasty after his master retired to his homeland. Lal Kot saw slaves like Qutubu’d-din Aibak (founder of Mamluk Dynasty), Iltutmish, Balban and an Empress, Raziya Saultan occupying the throne.

In this immersion we cover structures including the Qutub Minar, Quwwatu’l- Islam mosque, Iron pillar, Ala’i- Darwaza, Tomb of Imam Zamin, Tomb and Madrasa of Alauddin Khalji, Tomb of Shamsu’d-Din Illutmish (a self-built tomb), Alai Minar, Mosque, a Serai or rest house and a garden of the late Mughal Period.

This complex received the national award for the best maintained tourist friendly monument 2007-08. Overshadowed by the world famous monument, the Qutub Minar, it will quite interesting to explore the other buildings in the complex.
