Qutub Minar

The red sandstone tower of Qutb Minar, parts of it dating from the 12th century, stands at 72.5 meter high. It is a tapering tower, designed in a similar way to the Minaret of Jam located in Western Afghanistan. A long iron pillar stands in the courtyard. The legends say that if you can hug the pillar and make your hands meet, then your wishes will be fulfilled. Give it a go for a fun experience. 

Other significant features are the inner and outer courtyard, graves, tombs, and a madrasa. Explore the surrounding archaeological area, which contains incredible architectural finds such as Alai-Darwaza Gate. Further restorations in the 19th century resulted in the addition of a pillared cupola, called "Smith's Folly," now installed at ground level. The monument is open throughout the week 7 am–5 pm and takes about 90 minutes to explore.
