Qutub Minar is a world heritage site and one of the ancient monuments in India. The most overwhelming part of its sculpture is the impeccable work of calligraphy at its fourth level. If anyone has discovered any other noteworthy sculptures at Qutub Minar do share.

Qutub Minar is the tallest brick minaret that forms a part of the Qutub complex. Not only the Minar, but the whole complex is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Qutub Complex was in fact originally a sacred place for all the devotees and followers of Jainism where over 27 ancient Jain Temples were situated and probably constructed during the Pandava era. These Temples were demolished by the subsequent rulers like Anangpal, a Tomar Rajput King who constructed the `Lal Kot Fort` over this area followed by Prithvi Raj Chauhan, also a Rajput ruler who renovated Lal Kot and converted it into his city named `Qila-Rai-Pithora` and was later defeated and killed by an Afghan Sultan named Muhammad Ghori during the second battle of Tarrain. After this event Qutub-ud-din Aibak then captured the throne from Muhammad Ghori and established his own structures over this area and hence the Qutub Complex came into existence.
