Chor Minar or Tower of Thieves was built under the rule of a king of the Khilji dynasty in the thirteenth century. This is a tapering tower, made out of rubble and set on a platform with a staircase inside. There are holes sunk in the walls where, allegedly, severed heads of criminals were displayed as a deterrent, a technique also practiced in medieval Europe.
