Qutub Minar & Alai Darwaza

Qutub Minar and Alai Darwaza are two very important examples of the so called Indo-Islamic architecture. Neither is it a local variant of the Islamic architecture nor a product of the evolution of the local Hindu architectural style, but a splendid amalgamation of two different streams of art of construction, as a result of the spontaneous mingling and interaction. These two monuments, built over a Century apart (1202 ~1311) represent two significant advancements in the process. While the brick and mortar tower embellished with fluted, engraved sides is probably the most majestic of the early Sultanate period, Alai Darwaza, on the other hand celebrates the coming of age of local artisans. This is the oldest surviving proper dome in the country. Earlier attempts, significantly in the tombs of Balban and Iltutmish, failed and the domes collapsed.
