Overview

The gigantic rubble structure to the north of Qutub Minar is known as Alai Minar (tower). Set amidst other beautiful ruins of the Qutub complex, it is a testimony of the Mughal stubbornness to create architectural art. This is an unfinished base of the mammoth tower begun by Alauddin Khilji sometime in the 1200s. It was intended to rival the size of the Qutub Minar tower.
