Here on the south side of Delhi, the Qutb Minar towers over the area that made up the capital of the Islamic Delhi Sultanate. Qutb-ub-din Aybak built the first mosque here on the remains of older Hindu and Jain temples to go along with his tall Victory column, the Qutb Minar , announcing the arrival of Islam onto the Ganges. The tower is a five-story - 72.5 meter/239 feet - affair that time has given a slight tilt to. Begun in Qutb-ub-din Aybak?s time, it was not completed until his successor?s - Iltutmish - rule.
