Built in 1316 within the Qutb Minar complex by Aladdin Khilji, the Sultan who succeeded Iltutmish, his namesake Madrassa served as a theological school. It is an L-shaped structure with two domes and a few pointed arches, and next to it is his ruined mausoleum. Surprisingly, both lack any ornamentation which is a striking a contrast to other nearby structures that he built, such as the Alai Darwaza. He was also responsible for the Alai Minar, the unfinished tower that was to be twice the height of Qutb Minar.
