  • Wonderful tourist place of great historical value. A UN world heritage site, and truly so. Well laid out gardens. Ample parking space. Efficient ticketing system. One gets a feel of the architecture and art of the medieval era. A tourist gets a taste of both Muslim and Hindu art form in the same place. The placards and signpost near every monument is very self explanatory. One doesn't need guides. The tickets are priced very reasonably for Indian nationals.
  • Awesome sunshine, lots of restaurants to dine and wine, enjoying the breathtaking view of the beautiful river, with clear waters which shimmer. A place to go for family picnic, and to enjoy the fragrant Summer breeze. For all of those who are young and bright, take your cameras, balloons and kites, and fly them away in memory of the glory. Taking pictures through the passages of time, with your beautiful smile, and getting lost in the pages of history for a while.
  • A very good place for learning about history... Very clean, not much crowded. Not much costly. Timings are good. You can also see IRON PILLAR. Overall it's good for family outing. Loved there

  • One of the most recognized architecture's in Delhi and India. It has been well managed. The architecture of the complex is beautiful and some good work has been done by ASI for restoring and renovating the area. Proper guarding of the place has helped in less damage to the properties. There are washrooms available at various places. Token system for entry has helped remove corruption and maintain discipline for the people. Water still remains an issue here but everything else is sorted. Tickets are worth 30 rupees, some of the places are still not open for public which should be like the pyramid looking structure and the concentric circle structure.
