The construction of the Qutab Minar was started by Qutab-ud-Din Aibak in 1199. The tower is the largest in India and can be seen standing tall from miles around in the Delhi horizon. Constructed in red and buff sandstone and covered with intricate carvings and verses from the Holy Quran. Qutab Minar has five storeys surrounded by a projected balcony and buttressed by stone brackets, which are decked with honeycomb designs. The Qutab Minar is 72.5 meters high and there are 379 steps. The diameter of the base is 14.3 meters while the top floor's diameter measures 2.7 meters. There are numerous inscriptions on the Qutab Minar in Arabic and Nagari characters.
