Qutub Minar Old 25:

Qutbu'd-Din Aibak laid the foundation of Minar in AD 1199 for the use of the mu'azzin (crier) to give calls for prayer. He raised the first storey, to which were added three more storeys by his successor and son-in-law, Shamsu'd-Din Iltutmish. All the storeys are surrounded by a projected balcony encircling the minar and supported by stone brackets.
