Alai Darwaza and base of Qutab Minar, Delhi

This view along one of the outer walls of the Great Mosque of Delhi (also known as the Quwwat-ul-Islam mosque) shows the Alai Darwaza, the gatway into the mosque complex, and the base of the Qutab Minar, the tallest brick minaret in the world

Many thanks to Ken Creed for sending us these pictures, which were taken by his wife's uncle Terry Ruff during his time with No.357 Squadron, a special operations unit that operated over Burma, Malaya and Sumatra.
