Qubt Minar complex was originally a trading station in the middle of nowhere.
There was built a caravanserai to accommodate the visiting traders. The oldest mosque in India was built here. Remains of the mosque can be seen here.
A second stone tower was started but collapsed in the early stages of construction.
