  • Delhi has abundant historical places. Qutub Minar is one of them. It is rich with history. Must visit for everyone atleast once in their lifetime.  more »
  • The construction of the complex or of the minaret were begun in the 13th century. The Minaret impressed alone because of its height, the surrounding ruins by the magnificent (Hindu) ornamentation. The entire complex is worth at least a 1-hour visit. Long schedule directions and waits at the ticket counters, here a guide is certainly worthwhile.

  • One of the best monument of India. The beauty of this place is insane . Cleanliness is also very good . There are also much space to sit and spend time with your loved once. I think there should be some park type structure at the back side of the monument where we can sit and relax. Delhi should be proud of their efforts to preserve this space and to maintain everything so well. Definitely include Qutub Minar in your travel plans but do try to visit early in the day.

  • 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.
  • We went here as part of our 2 week tour. Glad we did this was a very beautiful and interesting place. The security guards like to talk and show you the best places to take photo's. It out of the way but our tour bus got us here. Looks like its on the metro line so that's and easy and cheap way to get there. Probably a top 5 attraction in Delhi
