The walls of the mosque and other structures in the complex are in ruins today but the minar stands tall, perfectly. The top 2 storeys have been damaged a few times mostly because of lightning striking the tower. The damage done was promptly repaired and the glory restored by the then emperors Feroz Shah Tughlak and later by Sikandar Lodi. The minar was also subject to some repairs during the British Raj and the Archaeological Survey of India has installed a lightning absorber to protect the structure from any more damages.
I liked the way the walls in the foreground have collapsed - just perfectly to accomodate view of the minar, as if purposely done :-)
