Taking a place of pride in Mehrauli, this imposing architectural wonder is, perhaps, the locus of the UNESCO-listed Qutab Complex. Nobody quite knows why this imposing red sandstone and marble structure was built, but what is indisputable is that it is one of the finest monuments in the country, and one of the most recognized. Its construction was started by Qutab-ud-din Aibak, the first Islamic ruler of Delhi in the 1100s, who managed to complete only the base of the structure. His successor, Iltutmish added three more stories, and later, Firoz Shah Tughlaq constructed the fifth and the last addition. Adorned with breathtaking carvings, engravings, spiral staircases as well as finely-crafted balconies, this imposing monument is where history and architectural excellence join hands in solidarity. Peppered across the grounds are a string of several such notable sites, like the Madrasa of Alauddin Khalji, Alai Minar, the Tomb of Iltutmish and the Quwwat-Ul-Islam Mosque.
