Qutb Minar

(0 votes, average 0 out of 5)

Image Built between 1193 and 1369, the Qutb Minar is the largest brick minaret in the world and a UNESCO world heritage site.

 

Moreover, the Qutb Minar is a tower symbolizing the Muslim conquest of Delhi. However, though this structure was originally solely Muslim, when touring around this structure keep a look out for some religious contradictions. For instance, the red sandstone walls of the tower are decorated with calligraphy stating verses of the Koran. Yet, the pillars that surround the courtyard are carved with Hindu iconography. In addition, in the center of the mosque stands a fourth century Iron Pillar that has inscriptions from the Gupta period.
