  • colossal tower Nice place It was constructed as a tower of victory marking the beginning of Muslim dominion in India. Another notable attraction inside the complex is Iron Pillar, a rust-resistant iron column. It is commonly believed that if one can embrace the pillar with both hands while standing with one's back facing the pillar then his/her wish gets fulfilled.

  • Very nice place for visiting. 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.
