  • At times, it is heart touching to watch the relics of an unfulfilled dream. Standing still here, a huge one storied minaret which could not rise as much as it was meant to be, is chanting the Psalms of lost lustre... years of moulding the protocol in mind... The pain in delivering every single stone in its posture... The pace in which fantasy shot up to the sky while the fact below decelerated... Alas, the deep sorrow that's only leftover... Alain minar- the unfinished dream.
  • A LONG JOURNEY STARTS WITH A SMALL FOOT STEP... WHICH COMES TRUE BY SEEING THIS BASE. ALAI MINAR - BRAIN CHILD OF ALUDIN KILJI , BORN PREMATURE BECAUSE OF HIS DEATH. KILJI DREAMED A TOWER TWICE THE HEIGHT OF QUTUB MINAR ,BUT NOT SUCCEEDED IN HIS LIFE TIME...
  • This place located in Qutub Minar complex Mehrauli New Delhi. Unfinished Minar built during the khalji dynasty. This place is beautiful and very famous for historical monument. Awesome neet and clean peaceful environment spent on time with family and friends.
  • " *Unconstructed* Beautiful place.. Tourist Spot, FamilySpot,Friendspot"
  • A must visit site within Qutub Minar Complex , built by Alauddin Khilji of Khilji Dynasty , incomplete structure due to death of Khilji no successors completed it , this is very good place to Hangout with family and friends on holidays or weekends !

Where to stay in New Delhi

New Delhi contains some of India's finest and most popular hotels, catering to business travelers and well-heeled tourists. For budget accommodations, consider the neighborhood of Paharganj, just west of the New Delhi railway station. Noisy and packed with peddlers of every kind, the area offers some of the least expensive rooms located relatively near major attractions. Guesthouses serve as the city's best mid-range option, with new ones constantly springing up to satisfy the growing number of visitors. Always call or visit the website in advance to check on prices and amenities included.
