    There is more than meets the eyes. Did you see many hindu idols (Shiva, Vishnu etc) scattered all over the complex? Did you see the courtyard with several hindu symbols, idols and carvings? Did you read the inscription on the Iron Pillar and its translation inscribed on a stone (by ASI)? Did you go inside the first mosque of India, the Quvvat-ul-Islam mosque, which still has all the hindu symbols on its walls? Qutab Complex is a War-Memorial constructed by a victorious invaders, who ruined a marvelous complex. Just think and try to figure out the truth.

    The inscription on Iron Pillar says, that this Vishnordhvaj (Vishnu’s Tower) was constructed by Chandragupta Vikramaditya after defeating Bahliks. Historians may read it as Vishnu’s Dhwaj (Vishnu’s Flag).

    Dear Mr. Dixit,

    Thank you for your feedback. Yes, I have seen most of the things that you mentioned, but not all. For example, I missed the translation of the inscription on the Iron Pillar. May be I should include these in the post. Initially I thought that it will be a quick visit to the Qutb Minar, but once inside it was difficult to leave and spent almost all the free time in there.
