This minar is actually on the grounds of the famous Qutb Minar. It was being built to be taller than the existing one but was never completed. We walked around it. Interesting to see and too bad it was not completed. Worth a look.
Alai minar is near qutub minar and no trip o qutub minar is complete unless you visit alai minar too. It's right adjacent to qutub minar and also have an historical importance and when I visited there with my friends I got to learn alot...More
If Qutub Minar is a symbol of man’s achievements and victories, the adjacently located Alai Minar could very well be an ode to one’s unfulfilled ambition. A dream, if not quite shattered, ruthlessly interrupted and forever extinguished. Alauddin Khilji would have been quite jealous of...More
The base of a Minar which was planned to be bigger and better than Qutb Minar , is a structure of unfinished base planned by Alauddin Khilji . The small structure gives a glimpse of the vision of the proposed monument .

The Alai Minar is in the same compound as the Qutab Minar. Seeing this brought back old memories of visiting this place as a school student. Its well maintained and the surrounding area is quite clean as well.
This is an abandoned construction of a minar near the famous Qutab Minar. It is believed to be built taller than minar but due to King’s demise, the construction was put on hold in between. Its is often ignored by tourist in favour of its...More

The Alai Minar is an incomplete monument that lies within the Qutb complex in South Delhi. Sultan Ala-ud-Din Khalji was an over ambitious Sultan of the Khilji dynasty and won many wars and battles. After a win from one of his Deccan campaigns, the Sultan dreamt of constructing a huge Tower or Minar to commemorate his victory. He wanted a structure that would double the height of Qutub Minar in order to be remembered as the only Sultan who dared to create such a monumental masterpiece that was grander and more spectacular than the Qutub Minar of Qutb-ud-din Aibak of the Slave dynasty that ruled before him. Qutub Minar as a whole is well worth the visit!
