How many of us notice the delicate work in the red and buff sandstone minaret we know as Qutub Minar?
The decoration is primarily Islamic in character. The most interesting and effective features are the boldly projecting balconies at every stage. These balconies are held up by 'stalactite vaulting' a building technique. A series of mini arches support a series of little brackets, the whole of which hold up the balcony. The little alcoves are patterned with honey-combing, giving it a intricately wrought appearance (see picture no.2). The three original storeys of Qutub Minar are of varied design. The lowest has angular flanges and rounded flutes alternating, the second has only round flutings while the third storey is an angular one. Yet the three are aligned in the position of these flutings.
