Marking the arrival of Islamic rule to India, the Qutb Complex is an imposing structure that is designed to impress generations to come. Today, this entire complex is considered to be a UNESCO World Heritage Site and makes a majestic statement on the tapestry of Islamic architecture in India.

The pillars and stones of the original habitants of this complex were used to build the new structure after which local Hindu artisans were taught how to work within the nitty-gritty’s of Islamic architecture.
