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 sandstone 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 marvel at its architecture.

  • The old ruins of the tower and old temples that were once Hindu were interesting to see. The shape of the large remaining tower has as interesting story to it so you must go and see it! An amazing historical place I ever visited. I will record the stories and w ill tell to my colleagues at home back. Qutub Minar is indeed an eye catching monument. Its amazing. The tall Minar stands firmly on ground and kisses the sky. Its a must visit monument. Book ticket online to enjoy hassle free entry. You can hire a government approved guide from the main entrance. After 2 hrs of sight seeing if you feel like eating something, you may enter "Qutub Restaurant", not far from Qutub Minar. Food is good there.
