  • 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. The old ruins of the tower and old temples that were once Hindu were interesting to see. 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.
  • Best place to visit in the early winter. Beautiful construction , beautiful place to spend time with our families. The winter is the best time to visit as we can see through all places. It is a beautifully preserved historical location. Stunning architecture. Lots of friendly families; good for people watching. Be sure to keep track of your blue entry coin, you will need it to exit; they don’t really warn you of this.
  • Just amazing place ever to visit...Beautiful historic monument! India's equivalent to leaning tower of Pisa. Easy tickets purchase online(and skip the queue for tickets).Qutub Minar is the tallest brick minaret in the world. The monuments around the Minar are equally beautiful and transport you to a different world. Lots of picture Opportunities and good view at sunset. Incredible architecture and beautiful carvings on the magnificent structures.the Iron Pillar of Delhi which coincidentally has no rust on it. Amazing!!! Totally a must visit place.
