The conquests of northern India were executed mainly by Qutb-ud-din Aibak, which helped Ghori to spread his tentacles there. Qutubuddin Aibak was crowned the Sultan of Delhi in 1206 after the death of Mohammad Ghori.

It was at the time of Qutb-ud-din Aibak the construction of Quwwat-ul-Islam mosque and the Qutub Minar had started which were later completed by his successor Iltutmish.
