Alai Minar. Delhi, India.

Ala ud din Khilji started building the Alai Minar, which was conceived to be two times higher than Qutab Minar. The construction was abandoned, however, after the completion of the 24.5 meter high first storey; soon after death of Ala-ud-din. The first story of the Alai Minar still stands today.

Lal Kot was an 8th century fortress in the Kingdom of Delhi. Anangpal, often described as the founder of Delhi, built the citadel some 10 kilometres from Suraj Kund around 731. Lal Kot was later used as a grand fort built by Anang Pal Tomar. The kingdom of Delhi was captured by the Chauhan Rajputs in the 12th century, and Prithviraj III built massive ramparts around the area and called it Qila Rai Pithora. The ramparts were later demolished by the slave kings and Lal Kot became the site of the first mosque in India, Quwwat-ul-Islam Masjid.
