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.

Qutub Minar, Delhi Reviews

  • It's one of the best place to visit in Delhi. After visiting this place, one will come to know that, what type of work was done, how excellent the workers were that even after almost 1000 yrs, the architecture is as it was. Still it looks like it has been made in recent past. It's not crowded too. Especially those who are studying, should visit here to know about our history.

  • Only queueing (waiting time, length ) is more. Happy visit with family members. Parking lot available. Nice place to spend time on the weekend. Sitting places available everywhere. There is a garden to spend time playing with kids. Nice place for photography. Food and lemon drink outside Qutub Minar is very expensive. I personally say to bring your own water bottle to save money. The environment is clean fresh breathable and greenery.

  • Wonderful tourist place of great historical value. A UN world heritage site, and truly so. Well laid out gardens. Ample parking space. Efficient ticketing system. One gets a feel of the architecture and art of the medieval era. A tourist gets a taste of both Muslim and Hindu art form in the same place. The placards and signpost near every monument is very self explanatory. One doesn't need guides. The tickets are priced very reasonably for Indian nationals.

  • Awesome sunshine, lots of restaurants to dine and wine, enjoying the breathtaking view of the beautiful river, with clear waters which shimmer. A place to go for family picnic, and to enjoy the fragrant Summer breeze. For all of those who are young and bright, take your cameras, balloons and kites, and fly them away in memory of the glory. Taking pictures through the passages of time, with your beautiful smile, and getting lost in the pages of history for a while.

  • Wonderful tourist place of historical value. A UN world heritage site, and truly so. Well laid out garden. Ample parking space. Efficient ticketing system. Nice place to hangout with family and friends on a very affordable price.
