Qutb-ud-Din Aibak's Tomb :

Qutb-ud-Din Aibak was the first Muslim Emperor of the Indo-Pak Sub-Continent and was the founder of the Slave Dynesty. Originally a Turk Slave, Qutbuddin was brought to Ghazni, and was brought by Shahabuddin Ghauri. Later, he rose to the heights of Commander-in-Chief of the forces of Shahabuddin Ghauri. On the death of Shahabuddin Ghauri, Qutbuddin Aibak was crowned in Lahore in 1206 AD.


Qutbuddin Aibak had a palace at Lahore, and the area now known as 'Anarkali' was in those days known as 'Mohalla kuttab Ghauri'. He died in 1210 AD while playing the game of Polo (called 'Chaughan' at that time), and a fine mausoleum of the king was costructed by Shamsuddin Altumash. This great slave-king also built the 'Qutab Minar' at Dehli in India.
