Qutub Minar and Iron Pillar

Qutub Minar is the tallest brick minaret in the world. Qutb-ud-din Aibak started its construction to celebrate the victory of Mohammed Ghori over Rajput king Prithviraj Chauhan in 1192 AD. Non Corroded Iron Pillar was erected in memory of Chandra Gupta II, and for the honour of God Vishnu.
