Qutb Minar Complex

Highly recommended
The Qutb Minar, a 73m-high minaret-tower dominating the other buildings and monuments in the park, stands on the site of the first Muslim Delhi, which was founded in the 13C by General Qutb ud-Din Aibak. Admire the Quwwat ul-Islam mosque, the oldest in India (1193) built in a mix of Muslim and Indian styles using materials taken from Jain and Hindu temples. To the west of the mosque, the tomb of Iltutmish (1235), the successor to Qutb ud-Din, was the first monumental tomb erected in India.
