Towering above the cityscape of Delhi, Qutub Minar is a beautiful brown minaret which is also the tallest tower in India, belonging to Mughal reign. The construction of the Qutub Minar began during the rule of Qutub Ud Din Aibak and was subsequently added upon by rulers like Itutulmish later on. It is one of the first constructions made by the Mughals in India.

Due to the age of the monument it has had to be restored and some places around it are in ruins but it stands tall as a beacon of Mughal past in India. The beautiful minar with its many balconies and sand stone architecture is an icon of the Mughal culture in India. Inside the Qutub Minar Complex, there is a 7 m-high iron pillar. It is said that if you can encircle it with your hands while standing with your back to it your wish will be fulfilled.

There are several old buildings worth seeing in these premises. The Minar has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1993. However, the Public access to the tower (i.e. inside the tower) was banned due to an incident in 1981 but it is definitely worth visiting to marvel at its architecture.

  • Awesome place. It opens at 6 and closed at 6. The best time to visit is early morning when there is no rush. We visited the place early in the morning at 7. It was awesome. The place has ample number of security staff to keep a watch on you which is good. The garden is maintained but more could have been done.

  • Loved this place! Qutub Minar, I can definitely say it is one the finest monuments in India and the best one I have visited till date. The tower is ornamented by bands of inscriptions and by four projecting balconies. It is said to be built to signify victory of Muslim ruler. But there are different opinions on its history. It is well maintained historical heritage. Ticket pricing and food cost in nearby area are also pretty decent.Place to visit along with your family when you are in Delhi.

  • A rich heritage site in India. A UNESCO World Heritage Site in the Mehrauli area of Delhi, India. Made of red sandstone and marble, Qutub Minar is a 73-metre (239 feet) tall tapering tower of five storeys, with a 14.3 metre (47 feet) base diameter, reducing to 2.7 metres (9 feet) at the peak. It contains a spiral staircase of 379 steps. Its design is thought to have been based on the Minaret of Jam, in western Afghanistan.

  • A lovely place. It's gives amazing vibes when you walk around these path. Not only you are looking the Qutub Minar but you are also feeling the history and rich culture of this place. Good thing is the Qutub Minar has been destroyed many but yet fixed many so that the people from all over the place can see it and you are one of the lucky ones who can see it. Other than that, the place is very well maintained and can spend 3-4 hours easily. If you have luggages you can keep inside luggage rooms.

  • What a wonderful place it is. Totaly in love with its architecture which was done centuries ago. Best place to visit in Delhi with your family or loved ones. You can also carry your food in but make sure not to throw stuff on floor or garden. Throw it only in dustbins and help them to keep area clean. Open garden little upward was giving a perfect view of sunset. Relaxes in the green grass after taking a round of whole premises of Qutub Minar.
