Description: The 72.5 m high red sandstone tower of Qutb Minar was built in the early 13th century a few kilometres south of Delhi; it tapers from 2.75 m in diameter at its peak to 14.32 m at its base, and alternates angular and rounded flutings. The neighboring archaeological area holds funerary buildings, notably the glorious Alai-Darwaza Gate of 1311, the masterpiece of Indo-Muslim art, and two mosques, among them the oldest in northern India-Quwwatu'l-Islam, which was built of reused materials from some 20 Brahman temples. --WHMNet paraphrase from the description at WHC Site, where additional information is available.
