The Qutab Minar is made of red sandstone covered with intricate carvings and verses from the Qur'an.
Before 1981, the general public could climb to the top of Qutub Minar by climbing up the seven-storey however after a fatal accident this has been stopped.
The Qutub Minar is one of the finest specimens of Mughal era, the Qutub complex has the tallest stone minar in India, the Qutub Minar with inscription on the minar stones.
Then there is Alai Minar, which was intended to be twice as tall as the Qutub Minar but left unfinished. There a two tombs one of Allauddin Khilji & second one of Iltutmish at the Qutub Complex, which as a whole is a very beautiful place.
