Located a few kilometres to the south of central Delhi, is the sprawling complex housing one of the capital's best-known landmarks-the Qutb Minar. Impressively ornate and beautifully calligraphed, this soaring tower of medieval vintage attracts many visitors from all across the globe. Though known primarily for the tower, the complex contains several other monuments like the Alai Darwaza, Alai Minar, Iltutmish's tomb, Alauddin Khalji's tomb and madrasa, and the Iron Pillar. This illuminating book outlines the Qutb's archaeological and historical background highlighting the architectural and cultural contours of the monuments inside the complex. The author takes readers on a wondrous journey through temples, tombs, dargahs, step-wells and tanks, gateways, madrasas, sarais, palaces, gardens, and mosques representing different historical periods. The monuments surrounding the Qutb Complex-Jamali Kamali mosque, Balban's tomb, Rajon ki Bain, Muhammad Quli Khan's tomb, and those in Mehrauli-are also described. The illustrations, layout plans, maps, and photographs provide an important visual presentation of the monument for visitors who will also find the glossary and practical tips very useful.
