twin qutub minar

2 years ago

you would be shocked to know that there is a second Qutub Minar in Delhi.  We call it Hastsal ki Laat or the Hastsal Minaret and is popularly known as the Laat.  The design of this monument resembles Qutub Minar and same material is used red sand stone and bricks.

The location of this minaret is at Hastsal village which is at western part of Delhi, bit far away from the famous iconic one at Mehrauli at southern part of Delhi.  Mughal Emperor Shahjahan built this in 1650 which served as his hunting lodge, height of Laat is 55-foot (17 m) high which is now abandoned.

Some people says that “there’s an underground tunnel between the Laat and the Bara Dari palace”
