Qutb-ud-din was a Turk of the Aibak tribe and was born somewhere in Central Asia. He rose through  the ranks to become Sultan Ghori's most trusted general. His greatest military successes occurred while he was directly under Sultan Ghori guidance and leadership. Qutb-ud-din was responsible for executing and consolidating Sultan Ghori's conquests in northern India.

Qutb-ud-Din Aibak was appointed Governor of India in 1191 A.D. by  Muhammad Ghori. He established the Slave  Dynasty on the death of Muhammad Ghori in 1206 when he assumed independence of his reign and was followed by nine other slave   kings. He was a patron of the building art and is known to have erected some monumental stone buildings  in Delhi and elsewhere. A very avid player of polo, he died in Lahore in  1210 A.D., while playing the game. Qutb-ud-din Aibak's tomb is located behind  Anarkali bazaar. In the early 1970's, it was renovated at the orders of the then Prime Minister Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto
