  • Interesting place, full of story from different eras. The Minar itself has written of holy Quran on it and it is built in Qutb-al-Din time. A “must see” in visiting Delhi.  more »

  • It's a great architectural and historical monument. I love the architecture and the material used in the construction. Detailed engraving done on the stones which can be seen in pictures clearly. I admire the work done by the people of that time. I also admire Delhi Government for the good maintenance work. One can go and visit this place for a full day to completely enjoy and appreciate the meticulous work done by the experts over carving the stones.
  • go and enjoy with your family or friends.Qutub Minar is a complex capturing various monuments that includes more than its star attraction Minaret. The complex is well maintained and has been refurbished in recent years. It’s easy to move around the complex since every thing is paved now. Having a guide helps a lot as they can explain complex history of monument and surroundings. Minaret itself is majestic and beautiful. Another attraction is Iron Pillar from early 2nd-3 rd century AD that shows ability to manufacture metallic structure of such complexity 1800 years ago. Must visit to this place if in Delhi.
  • A historical place. Clean and maintained by govt. of India. Many tourist and Indian individual visit this place. The tower is really huge and worth watching. Big structure and a big place to roam around. Security should be more because people are damaging this place. Security camera should be installed at prime locations. Nice place to visit.
  • Awesome place worth visiting if you're traveling to Delhi. 30 rupees for entrance fee for Indians, no idea how much they're charging for foreigners. If you're a student of liberal or contemporary arts you MUST visit this place as it holds a huge significance in your subjects. A guide is optional. There exists an iron pillar that never rusts which is truly an amazing phenomenon and is still a mystery of it's composition to the current modern metallurgy. I advice against buying food nearby as they charge it at least 15-20 times more than the going rate. Metro access is epic and very convenient.
  • Very well preserved structures and worth a visit while in Delhi. We had tried to see this the day prior but the crowds were overwhelming for our kids so we returned earlier the following morning and it was a lot quieter. The minaret itself is amazing but we were impressed by all the other ruins in the grounds here. Delhi should be proud of their efforts to preserve this space and to maintain everything so well. Definitely include Qutub Minar in your travel plans but do try to visit early in the day when you'll basically have the place to yourself!
