Qutub Minar - Review

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.

  • colossal tower Nice place It was constructed as a tower of victory marking the beginning of Muslim dominion in India. Another notable attraction inside the complex is Iron Pillar, a rust-resistant iron column. It is commonly believed that if one can embrace the pillar with both hands while standing with one's back facing the pillar then his/her wish gets fulfilled.

  • One of the finest work of architecture in India....Qutub Minar is 73m tall, five storey architecture and a UNESCO world heritage site..... Preserved by Archiological survey of India.... It's a great architectural and historical monument.... I love the architecture and the material used in the construction... you can also enjoy restaurant foods.. they are too good here... this place is purely a beauty of Indian history representing our culture. Really awesome place

  • I have visited here more than 4 times in a month. One thing I can tell you is that visit only in evenings. This place has so much history to tell. Try to get yourself a guide and you'll love Qutub Minar even more after that. Also, many interesting and creative photos an be taken here. Don't go for just casual and common Holding-Qutub-Minar pose. Explore. Have fun.

  • It is so nice to be in a clean park full of history of Delhi. And the entry fee is very low even for the people of foreign origin. The audios being rented are useful and automatically inform you about different buildings when you reach there. A good car parking is available.
