's Madrasa, near Qutub Minar
, lies immediately to the south-west of the Quwwat-ul-Islam Mosque
. Presently the madrasa is in a dilapidated condition but it is possible to visualise from a study of its fragmentary remains the appearance of the structure in the days of its founder. The madrasa is built around a simple quadrangular court entered on the north side through a triple gateway of some size, the central bay of which projects somewhat beyond those flanking it.
It has been often argues that this madrasa was built by Iltutmish
and not Ala-ud-din Khilji. The deciding factor for this argument is the high-drummed domes and the more advanced corbelled pendentive treatment beneath them. These are in distinct contrast to the flat conical Hindu type of dome that supposedly covered the Tomb of Iltutmish
originally, and the primitive squinch-arches which carried that dome across the corners of the tomb.
