The sultans of Delhi had their origins in central Asian countries and they were actually the military heads of Ghurid dynasty. Their reign started with Qutb-ud-din Aibak who built the Qutb-minar and this monument itself can be called the beginning of their rule. This monument was built on an occasion after Qutb-ud-din Aibak’s victory against Prithviraj Chauhan. The sultanate saw 5 dynasties in the 320 year period of its rule in Delhi. The Sultanate of Delhi was very successful in protecting India from the invasion of Mongols several times.
