Indian Archtecture 1: The Great Qutub Minar

One of the many wonderfull archs of the minar area.
Ornamentation at the base of a pillar...Marvel on stone!

Ornamentation on the body of the main minner...worth watching.

Here comes the Hero...the Great Qutub Minar!
The Qutub Minar is the world's tallest brick build minaret. The construction of the minar was started by India's first muslim ruler Qutub-Ud-In Aibak in the year of 1193. The minar was completed by Firuz Shah Tughlaq in 1386. Firuz Shah Tughlak took the credit to build the top most storey of the minnar.
The Qutub Minar is one of the best example of Indo-Islamic Architecture.
A must visit place for all...
