The high and still good-looking monument of Delhi which can be seen from most parts of the city is called the Qutab Minar. Each and every one has the equal question when one sees the arrangement for the first time. The problem that is regularly being put up is "Why the monument is that big?" or "Was present any exact reason to build such a tall building or it was now a desire of the person who built it?" healthy, the exact reason is understood to have amazing connected to commemorating the victory.
Mughals used to construct victory towers to proclaim and celebrate victories. Several say the minaret was used to present request but it is so high that you can hear the person standing on the top. Moreover, the minaret is not connected on to Qutuddin's mosque and the Iltutmish's mosque.
Qutab Minar is among the tallest and well-known towers in the world. The minaret is 234 feet high and the highest individual tower in the world. Further towers in the world are the huge Pagoda in Pekin, China and the Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy but these towers are not as high as the Qutab Minar in Delhi.
According to history books, the minar was started by Prithviraj or his uncle Vigraharaja who won Delhi from the Tomar Rajputs. However, it is assumed and historians believe that Qutubuddib and Iltutmish finished it though the minar may have been commenced by Prithviraj or Vigraharaja. The minar was total in 1200 A.D and since then the tall structure has been present upright and still attractive keeping an eye to Delhi presently like a sentry.
While Alauddin returned from the wars in the Deccan, he had this attention in mind that he would build a victory tower somewhat similar to the Qutab Minar. The ruins of this very initiative can be seen adjacent to the Qutbuddin's mosque because Alauddin died at the especially start of the construction work and no one accepted on to finish the initiative taken by Alauddin.
Qutab Minar is a fresh huge masterpiece of Mughal architecture. It has a number of floors or storeys which has good-looking carvings like the one on the tomb of Iltutmish. Present are inscriptions all round the tower and these inscriptions reveal that Iltutmish finised the tower. The arrangement of the wall is finished as such that it widens from top to bottom, presently to make the minar stronger.
