Alai Minar and Qutb Minar. Qutb Complex, Delhi, India. June 2006. Alauddin Khilji started building the Alai Minar, after he had doubled the size of Quwwat ul-Islam Mosque. He conceived this tower to be two times higher than Qutb Minar in proportion with the enlarged mosque. The construction was however abandoned, just after the completion of the 24.5-metre-high (80 ft) first-story core; soon after death of Ala-ud-din in 1316, and never taken up by his successors of Khilji dynasty.
