Qutub Minar | Qutb Complex | New Delhi | Highest Tower in India | UNESCO World Heritage Site

Spread the love

Our first destination in Delhi is Qutub Minar(Qutb/Qutab Minar). The tower which is the highest one in the country is mainly a victory tower built in the 12th century AD by Qutub Ud Din Aibak. The place is also part of UNESCO World Heritage site. It is definitely a great excitement that we get when we visit places that are part of history and which we learnt in our History text books when we were younger. The mosque is demolished now. But the remains is a good treat to the eyes.

About Qutub Minar
================
The Qutb Minar, also spelled as Qutub Minar, is a minaret and “victory tower” that forms part of the Qutb complex, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the Mehrauli area of Delhi, India. Qutb Minar was 73-metres (239.5 feet) tall before the final, fifth section was added after 1369. The tower tapers, and has a 14.3 metres (47 feet) base diameter, reducing to 2.7 metres (9 feet) at the top of the peak. It contains a spiral staircase of 379 steps.

Its closest comparator is the 62-metre all-brick Minaret of Jam in Afghanistan, of c.1190, a decade or so before the probable start of the Delhi tower. The surfaces of both are elaborately decorated with inscriptions and geometric patterns; in Delhi the shaft is fluted with “superb stalactite bracketing under the balconies” at the top of each stage. In general minarets were slow to be used in India, and are often detached from the main mosque where they exist.
