Qutab Minar Tour


One of the famous minarets of India, Qutub Minar is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, positioned in Delhi, India. The Qutub Minar is amazingly built with incredible red stone and beautiful marble. Also, it is the biggest minaret of Delhi, with the total height of 72.5 meters and houses 379 stairs which leads you to the top, displaying the beautiful scenery of Delhi. Further, the diameter of the base of Qutub Minar is approximately 14.3 meters. The minaret was commenced by famous Turkic king of Northwest India, Qutb-ud-din Aibak in 1199 A.D and finished by the third ruler of the Mamluk dynasty of Delhi, Iltutmish.
Qutub Minar is popular for being one of the ancient and most outstanding exemplar of Indo-Islamic structural design. It is enclosed by numerous other ancient and medieval constructions, which are jointly called the Qutub complex. Qutub Minar, inspired by the famed Minaret of Jam in Afghanistan, was constructed with fluted red sandstone enclosed with complex carvings and contents from the Qur'an. Several engraving in the different part of Qutub Minar in Arabic as well as in Nagari characters, discloses the eminent history of the minaret. According to the engravings, the minaret was repaired by well-known Firoz Shah Tughlaq (AD 1351-88) and renowned Sikandar Lodi (AD 1489-1517).

The Qutub Minar includes several superposed flanged as well as cylindrical rays, estranged by balconies positioned on Muqarnas corbels. The complex primarily included 27 primeval Hindu and Jain temples, which were later damaged and their remains used to build the Qutub Minar. The main reason of constructing Qutub minar was variously considered upon, different aspects. However, most of the historians think that the minaret was built to honor the first Turkish sultan, Qutub-ud-din Aibak but other believe, that it was a tribute to Qutubuddin Bakhtiar Kaki, who was a saint from Transoxiana, came to live in India and was deeply adored by Iltutmish.

The Iron Pillar, close to the world's leading metallurgical curiosities, positioned in the prominent Qutub complex. According to the customary belief, any person who encloses the whole column with their arms, standing backwards towards the pillar, can have their wish fulfilled. The Indian government has built the fence around Qutub Minar to protect it from various threats. Further, the iron used to protect the minaret is of incredible quality. Also, the softness of the surface of pillar makes it the rust evidence.

If you are attracted towards this wonderful monument then, book yourself to India tours and get the glimpse of this terrific minaret.
