The construction began in the 12th century by the slave king Qutubuddin Aibak, from whose name the minaret gets its name. In the same complex is a mosque and iron pillar, which has not rusted even after 1,500 years.
Humayun’s Tomb: The mausoleum of the Mughal Emperor Humayun. It was built in 1570 by the emperor’s widow, Haji Begum. As a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it was the first garden tomb of India and a forerunner of the Mughal style of architecture, with high arches and formal gardens (charbagh).
Red Fort: One of the most spectacular pieces of Mughal Architecture is the Lal Quila or the Red Fort. Built by the Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan between 1638 and 1648, the Red Fort has walls extending up to 2 kms. in length with the height varying from 18 mts. on the river side to 33 mts. on the city side.
India Gate: A 40-meter high war memorial arch dedicated to Indian soldiers who died in World War I.
Rashtrapati Bhawan: The President’s residence and formerly the Viceroy’s Palace, this building is constructed on top of Raisina Hill. As the highlight of Lutyen’s Delhi, it is an impressive sight, particularly when it is lit up.
