Towering at the height of 73 metres, the minaret is made out of marble and red sandstone. It took nearly 2 centuries to complete it to the state we can admire today. Levels were added by various rulers, the last of them by Sultan Firuz Shah Tughlaq in the 1370s.
Open every day, likely to be open sunrise to sunset.
