It is full of beautiful history well worth a visit. We took lots of amazing photos and enjoyed the views.
We just stopped at Qutub Minar by around 8 O'clock in the night and was in an impression that this place would be closed but for the utter surprise and good luck this place is open for entry till 8.30 in the night and it's much more worth visiting in the night. You can have an option of clicking photograph in peace as this time there would be very few visitors and the ligths what they have installed is amazing and from excellent angels. Must visit in the night.
Whenever I come to qutub minar I find some great peace there is not just only qutub minar rather there you will find lot of monuments like ALAI MINAR, ANCIENT TIME'S COLLEGE etc. It's very well maintained washroom facility is available. Ticket charges for Indian adult is 30 and for foreigners is 250-300. Children among 12 years are free from ticket charges😂 must visit once in a life you will love it.

There was a 13ft. pillar on it's peak. But due to earthquake it fell. The holly Quran and the history of this Minar has been written on the wall of the Minar. There is a government resthouse alongside the minar. You need to get permission to stay there.
