The Report by the First President and Founder of the Archeological Survey of India,Sir Alexander Cunningham,in 1871.

1871-72 report prepared by the ASI states that the mosque on the Qutub Minar campus was constructed over Hindu temples
Report was prepared by JD Beglar and ACL Carlleyle in 1871-72 under the supervision of Sir Alexander Cunningham, the founding head of the Archaeological Survey of India. The report states that a mosque was built on the site of a temple. This is because the foundation of the mosque is very old and it shows that previously there was a temple here.
ASI’s ex-regional director Dharamveer Sharma claimed that the Qutub Minar was constructed by Hindu emperor Raja Vikramaditya and not by Qutb al-Din Aibak, to study the direction of the sun. He also said the ancient iron pillar at the complex used to be known as ‘Garuda pillar’ and appears to be from the 5th century. Idols of Hindu deities like Vishnu and Lakshmi made of black stone were found in Mehrauli and are now kept in the National Museum, the former ASI director said, adding that they seem to date back to the 1st century.
The following are some important takeaways from the 1871-72 report:
The pillars are reinstalled in their original locations in the colonnade of a single Hindu temple. Their current height is the same as the original Hindu colonnade.
The terrace on which the mosque currently sits was formerly an untouched Hindu temple platform.
The mosque’s exterior and inner walls are reminiscent of Hindu design; the corner dome is similarly reminiscent of Hindu architecture.
Even if Muslims built the Qutub Minar, its foundations were laid long after the walls of the temple (the current mosque).
The pillar is known as the ‘Arm of Vishnu’. Beglar claims that Hindus own the pillar and that it was built by Prithviraj to allow his daughter to see the Ganges.
The surrounding walls are sculpted with several Vaishnav sculptures, including avatars of deities and Lord Narayan lying in the folds of the serpent, Anantha.
The outer south gate, foundations, and craftsmanship of those superstructures are consistent with the remainder of the Hindu walls.
The inner south gate and the blocks of the sunken pillars are likewise Hindu.
Muslims purposefully covered the Hindu-styled double-cornice with benches of their own design and adjusted the outer enclosure’s floor level.
The masjid’s cloister floor and iron pillar were preserved, but the courtyard’s original Hindu-styled floor was covered up to conceal remains of Hindu temples and inscriptions that may have been there.
Excavation of the inner south gate revealed solely Muslim additions and changes.
Two black slate images of Lakshmi, as well as several archaic clay lamps, were discovered in the trenches.
Hinduism is vilified for its Caste Divisions. Caste is some thing that can not be wished away in a Human being however enlightened one pretends to be. For my views on Caste please refer my post caste, under Hinduism. Religions that make fun of idol worship have landed in worshiping idols. Islam, The Kaaba,Prophet’s hair,Hazratbal…
It is well known that the Temples of India were destroyed, razed to the ground by the Moguls. The wealth of the temples were looted. The Stones, pillars were used construct Mosques, mostly at the same site. In Benares, the Holy City of Hindus, the Shiv Linga was destroyed and a Mosque erected. The Linga…

There this cry is not heard because even the memories of earlier civilizations have been wiped out. Nor would you hear this in Africa for here also the people have been brainwashed into believing that they had no culture or history, as is often made out for Arabia before the advent of promoted Religions/ sects.…
As it happens with me, i stumbled to some information which is worth writing about. Lord Vishnu’s Feet have been found on Humayun Tomb. And the Humayun tomb was built on a Vishnu Pada Temple. Stephen Knapp had published a Photo of this.
According to him as well as a later Ghaznavid historian Gardizi, the images of the other goddesses were destroyed in Arabia but the one of Manat was secretly sent away to Kathiawar (in modern Gujarat) for safe keeping. Since the idol of Manat was an aniconic image of black stone, it could have been easily confused with a Shiva lingam at…

Namaste Sir Just one correction Qutub Minar is not built on Hindu Temple but fact is that there is no qutub minar at all. It is captured Vishnu Dhawaj Stambh an astronomical observatory built by King Chandra and which was used by Great Scientist Varahamihira so our ancient Hindu Monument is still intact needs to be realised and also Central Govt has already started excavation of Vishnu Dhwaja Stambh more reading Qutub Minar is Vishnu Dhwaja Stambh a Scientific Survey by Gopal Godse Ji
