Qutub Minar is the tallest brick Minaret in the world. Made from red sandstones, this monument which is still in good shape and form, is visible from great distance. It is undoubtedly the best known monument in Delhi. It's images have regularly been featured in News Papers, Magazines and Websites. It has also remain one of the main faces of Indian tourism Industry.

A look at this Photo Feature will present you with a slice of ancient civilization. 
The colourful entrance is like a time machine. Once you pass through this gate you go back to time and in another era.
I was stunned by the large number of foreign tourist. This monuments summons highest number of visitors in Delhi and in India, bearing Taj Mahal.
Qutub Minar building was commenced in the year 1193 and was completed in the year 1368. Each structure and monuments in the complex compliment each other and made this place a visual treat.

Alai Minar was a scheme to build another Minar as towering as the Qutub Minar.  But  as the ruin reveals, it never was completed. 
Nearest Metro station is the Qutub Minar station. From there one can take an Auto for a meagre sum. Outdoor Metro ride to this place is also a treat.
