This is the Quwwat-ul-Islam mosque inside the Qutub complex. Though its almost in ruins, but the architecture is worth watching. It wasn't as dark as it seems here - I deliberately focused the shot against the sun with a low exposure to get the silhoutte effect.
This mosque was built on the site of a Hindu Temple and most of the material used here was taken from the temple. What makes the blend look good, are the pillars in the foreground which have a definite ancient Hindu style and the walls which are a perfect example of medieval Islamic architecture. The lone pillar in the center of the door in the background is the Iron Pillar.
