  • An amazing historical structure made in India. Marble is used in construction of minar. No Crowded area. Clean area. Pleasing area. Good garden and lawn. You can see the airplanes fly over your head gives good feeling for Indian. No high security is at place.
  • Pictures don't do justice to this place. Absolutely magnificent. Carvings, surroundings, iron pillar, old relics everything is there and not to mention a special aura in the air. The minaret is beautiful and the area around is prettier. One must go there to know what a beautiful historical monument it is. Pure Magic.
  • Awesome place. It opens at 6 and closed at 6. The best time to visit is early morning when there is no rush. We visited the place early in the morning at 7. It was awesome. The place has ample number of security staff to keep a watch on you which is good. The garden is maintained but more could have been done.
  • A architecture marble of medieval India. It is an amazing site in Delhi with super architecture and the security guards were so friendly they even took photos for us. Hit this near sunset and the lighting was even more awesome. Must visit in Delhi. The whole campus is full of beautiful sights. One can spend a whole day here, enjoying self.
  • Loved this place! Qutub Minar, I can definitely say it is one the finest monuments in India and the best one I have visited till date. The tower is ornamented by bands of inscriptions and by four projecting balconies. It is said to be built to signify victory of Muslim ruler. But there are different opinions on its history. It is well maintained historical heritage. Ticket pricing and food cost in nearby area are also pretty decent.Place to visit along with your family when you are in Delhi.
