Qutub Minar - Dehli, India

The Tower of Qutub Minar in Dehli, India was commissioned by Qutubddin Aibak in 1192 to celebrate Islam's victory over the infidels. It took them 18 years to build this Victory Tower and it is so well built that even after 800 years it is in perfect state of preservation considering that Delhi is in seismic zone IV.
