Built in 1235, it is even difficult for people of this generation to think about the lives of people 800 years ago. This tomb is one reminder of that era. Greatly maintained. Must visit.

This tomb is located within the Qutub Complex and is a must visit place if you are visiting Qutub. The cravings on walls will immediately seek your attention.
