The construction of the Qutub Minar was started by Qitub-ud-Din Aibak in 12th century. He only constructed the basement. The diameter of the base is 14.3 meters and at the top it is 2.7 meters. The construction of the tower was later taken over by his successor Iltutmish and he constructed three more stories. The last two storeys were later completed by Firoz Shah Tuglak.
