About the Qutab Minar
The Qutab Minar is an historically significant minaret located within an larger group of buildings from the same period which is often referred to as the Qutab Complex, and located 14.8 km by road to the south of New Delhi Railway Station. There are two particularly significant things about the Qutab Minar minaret. One is its size: the minaret is five storey’s tall with a height of 73 metres, making it the tallest brick built minaret in the world. The other significant thing about the Qutab Minaret is it age: construction began in 1192 and was completed in 1220. Work on the Qutab Minar was commissioned by the first Muslim ruler of Northern India, Quṭab u-Dīn Aibak, who founded the Malmuk Dynasty, which ruled Delhi and much of North east India from 1206 to 1290. The Qutab Minar is one of the earliest minarets constructed in India and symbolic of the introduction of Islam into area which had previously been predominantly Hindu.
The Qutab complex is open from Sunrise to Sunset every day of the year. For foreign visitors entrance costs 500 Indian Rupees. Because of a major accident in 1974, where large numbers of visitors died in rush for the exits where the light failed, visitors are no longer allow to climb the spiral staircase within the minaret leading the top level of the structure. Visitors can, however, still view the minaret from ground level which is impressive in its own right.
