We want just before lunchtime, and it was certainly very busy. Don't let that put you off though: this is a fascinating place, and the architecture is quite awe-inspiring. It's easy to spend an hour wandering around: helpful if you have a guide to talk you through the history of the place. A must see!

Nice place with family, Qutb Minar, at 73 metres, is the tallest brick minaret in the world and second highest minar in India after Fateh Burj at Punjab, India. Qutb Minar, along with the ancient and medieval monuments surrounding it, form the Qutb complex,

The tallest brick minaret in the world, supposedly inspired by Minaret of Jam of Western Afghanistan. It got the name since the construction was started by Qutb Al-Din Aibk. The construction was taken up by his successor Iltumish after Qutub's death. However the construction had faced the wrathe of nature multiple times, including various lightnings. The Iron Pillar of Delhi... More

A complex full of history! One of the biggest attractions in New Delhi. The name is given by the minaret that stands out. At 72 meters is the world's tallest brick minaret. In the complex you can still see an old Mosque, the Alai Gate, the Iron Pillar and some Tombs.

One of our first sights in Delhi! It was beautiful! A delight to walk around and enjoy the garden as well as the history of the area. The pillars and architecture are truly stunning to behold, the history is compelling, and the grounds beautiful. A wonderful stop on a trip through Delhi.

We enjoyed a relaxed walk around this monument, which is in a fine condition, having care taken to use good conservation techniques to maintain the fabric of the structures. The interpretation is good with multi-lingual signage, and well maintained grounds. The access to areas is quite good with some ramps, however some higher levels may not be accessible for wheelchairs,... More
