Qutub Minar, Delhi

The Qutab Minar is the tall and ever-attractive Delhi monument that can be seen from most areas of the town. When you first see the structure, each body has the same question. The issue that is often asked is "Why is the monument that large?" or "Was there any particular reason to construct such a large building or was it just a wish of the individual who constructed it?" Well, the precise reason is supposed to have something to do with the victory commemoration. To proclaim and celebrate victories, Mughals used to construct victory towers. Some say the minaret has been used to pray, but it's so big that you can hear the individual on top. The minaret is also not attached to the mosque of Qutuddin and the mosque of Iltutmish.

Qutab Minar is one of the world's highest and most popular towers. The minaret is 234 feet high and the world's largest single tower. The Great Pagoda in Beijing, China and the Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy are other towers in the globe, but these towers are not as high as the Qutab Minar in Delhi.

The minar was launched by Prithviraj or his uncle Vigraharaja, who won Delhi from the Tomar Rajputs, according to history books. However, it is presumed and historians think that it was completed by Qutubuddib and Iltutmish although Prithviraj or Vigraharaja may have started the minar. The minar was finished in 1200 A.D. and since then there has been the tall structure upright and always lovely to keep an eye on Delhi just like a sentry. When Alauddin came back from the Deccan wars, he believed he would create a tower of victory somewhat comparable to the Qutab Minar. The ruins of this very initiative can be seen close to the mosque of Qutbuddin because Alauddin died at the very beginning of the building job and no one continued to complete Alauddin's initiative.
