Qutab Minor

Last site I saw today was Qutab Minor, another A.S.I. run site. The tower was built for muezzin's to call the population to prayer, and a mosque stands nearby. Much of the mosque is built from pieces of Hindu and Jain monuments. I suspect in an attempt to assert dominance. My guide wasn't able to provide much more information beyond saying it is a wonderful example of Hindu-persian architecture and repeat the year it was built. Perhaps she should have read the Delhi tourism information on the monument. Sadly, neither this site nor any others really seem to have extensive information available on site.
