Qutub Minar: Many people do not know but Qutub Minar holds a world record of being the tallest minaret of the world built only using the bricks. The minar is exactly 72 metres tall and is the proof of the excellence the Ghorid Dynasty architecture has gained during its time. Qutub Minar also signifies the victory of this dynasty in India. It was built during the reign of Qutb al-Din Aibak and hence this is where it borrows its name from. It is one of the most famous monuments in India. It is a 5 storey structure with top 2 storeys different from the bottom 3. This is because lightning destroyed the top 2 storeys and Qutb’s grandson Firoz Shah Tughlak had to build the new one during the restoration process.
