At the foot of the Qutab Minar stands the first mosque to be worked in Quite a while. An engraving over the east door expresses that it was worked with materials acquired from wrecking ’27 worshipful sanctuaries’. Just as mind boggling carvings that show an away from of Islamic and pre-Islamic styles, the dividers of the mosque are studded with sun circles, shikharas (rising pinnacles) and other conspicuous bits of Hindu and Jain workmanship. This Quwwat-ul-Islam Masjid was Delhi’s primary mosque until 1360.
Altamish, Qutb-ud-racket’s child in-law, extended the first mosque with an isolated court somewhere in the range of 1210 and 1220, and Ala-ud-Din Khilji included the dazzling marble and sandstone Alai Darwaza gatehouse in 1310.
Close by is the humble burial chamber of the Turkic holy person Imam Zamin, raised in the Lodi time.
