Qutb Minar is a Heritage site built as a tower of victory by Afghan minarets by Qutbuddin Aibak, the first sultan of Delhi, after defeating the Hindu rulers in 1192. He built this tower immediately after the defeat of Delhi's last Hindu kingdom.

Qutb Minar was built by the three rulers of the Delhi Sultanate, Qutbuddin Aibak, Iltutmish, and Firoz Shah Tughluq. Qutbuddin Aibak, the first Muslim ruler of Delhi, began the construction of this tower but could complete the basement. Later the next ruler of Delhi Sultanate, Iltutmish, added three more storeys to this building and in 1368, Firoz Shah Tughlak constructed the fifth and the last storey.
