Amazing place for visitors. Qutub Minar is a most famous and one of the tallest minar of India. It is located in Delhi at Aurobindo Marg, Mehrauli and has been added to the world heritage sites. It is a second tallest minar of India which was constructed in 1192 by the Muslim ruler Qutab-ud-din Aibak and completed later by Muslim ruler Altumash. The height of this minar is 73 meter (237.8 feet) having 379 steps or staircases. It is a five storeys tower built in unique designs (first three storeys are built using red sandstones and top two storeys are built using marble and sandstones) having base diameter of 14.3 meter and top diameter of 2.7 meter. But it is smaller than The Taj Mahal in height.
