Description

This monument is 73 meters high and has various historical interpretations. It is believed to have been erected as a mark of triumph after the beginning of the Muslim empire, alongside the construction of the first mosque ‘Quwwat-Ul-Islam’. Some also interpret it as a minaret that was used to call the devotees for prayer. The various tombs and grasslands surrounding the monument make it even more interesting to observe.
