This unfinished minar north of the Qutb-Minar was commenced by 'Allu'd-Din Khalji, but with its extant height of 24. 5 m it had hardly reached its first storey when he died leaving it incomplete. 'Allu'd-Din had doubled the size of the Quwwatu'I-Islam masjid, and his minar was also conceived to be double the height of the Qutb-Minar to be proportionate with the enlarged mosque
