Qutub Minar

The tall minaret of Qutub Minar is a World Heritage Site constructed in 1192. Practically, the construction of Qutub Minar was started by Qutab-ud-din Aibak, and after his death, the construction was carried out by his successor iltutmish. The conical tower which is also the sign of Afghan architecture gathers a lot of attraction every year. On a rough estimate, there are more than 3.9 million visits this place annually.

The 237.8 feet world heritage site has survived the ravage of time gracefully. Every storey of the building exhibits a unique design and is surrounded by lush green gardens. If someone wants to witness the bird’s eye view of the busy city, take 379 steps to the top.

Verses of the Holy Qur’an can be found on the sandstones of its walls. The verses serve the purpose of prayer in the Quwwat-ul-Islam Mosque.
