Soaring 237ft into Delhi's skyline, the Qutub Minar is a historic tapering tower made of red sandstone and marble. The entire complex is a well-preserved example of the Islamic architectural and artistic traditions that flourished in India after Islamic rulers first established themselves there, beginning in the 12th century. The intricate tower is inscribed with a number of Quranic verses and is decorated with beautiful carvings and patterns. Designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site - and the tallest building in the world to be made of bricks - the Qutub Minar is a fascinating site for history buffs.
Climb its spiralling corridors to see the different stages of construction and learn more about Islamic architecture and culture. Then continue on up the stairs to the top for beautiful panoramic views of the old city of Delhi, with its narrow streets and historic buildings.
