Surrounding the minar are many fine examples of artwork from the time it was built in 1193. A second tower was in construction and planned to be taller than the Qutub Minar itself. Its construction ended abruptly when it was about 12 meters tall.The name of this tower is given as Alau Minar and construction of the same ended due to the death of the Sultan ,Alauddin Khilji. Only the core made of random rubble masonry and mortar remain of this unfinished tower which was to have been twice the height of the Qutb Minar of Qutb ud din Aibak.

    Amazing architecture. Why we aren't exposed to this in the western classrooms baffles me. Nice picture and framing.
