The Qutb complex is an array of monuments and buildings at Mehrauli in Delhi.  The complex initially housed a twenty-seven ancient Jain temples which were destroyed and their material used in the construction of the Quwwat-ul-Islam Mosque next to the Qutab Minar minaret.  The Qutb complex was built on the ruins of Lal Kot Fort built by Tomar Rajput ruler of Anangpal in 739 and Qila-Rai-Pithora.  The complex was added to by many subsequent rulers.  The most famous monument situated in the complex is the Qutab Minar built in 1192 by Qutbuddin Aibak.  Other important constructions in the complex are the Quwwat ul-Islam Mosque, the Alai Gate, the Alai Minar, and the Iron pillar surrounded by Jain temple ruins.
