Muslims ruler- Kutubuddin Ebak demolish Huge Shri Vishnu Mandir converted In Kutub Minar

Unfinished tower or a destroyed hindu archetecture
Hindu Architecture

Hindu tempel alter converted to burial ground

Hindu Temple Remnant

Hindu temple remnant - Sadly the muslim rulers either demolished the hindu tempels or converted them into Islamic mosque. Those intolerant attitude has left a indelible scar in Hindus psyche for ever. That is reflected in the rise of Hindu nationalism in India. These are the pillars commonly seen in hindu temples.

I am not sure what was the reason to build this tower. Was it a triumphant gesture or a watch tower? What ever the reason may be. But it looks good and well worth the visit if you are passing through Delhi.

Talk about intolerance - this is one of extreme examples of Islamic intolerance towards other religions. Now they are discovering that the world famous Taj mahal is also one such conversion of Hindu temple.

Qutub minar is built in a temple which was converted to a mausoleum. The once Hindu temple altar is now a burial ground !!!

Sadly the Muslim rulers of India either demolished the hindu tempels or converted them into Islamic mosque. Those intolerant attitude has left a indelible scar in Hindus psyche for ever. That is reflected in the rise of Hindu nationalism in India.

This a splendid brick tower built by three different kings to its completion. It has wonderful art work carved into it all over.
