"Beautiful historical place." new review

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 1 week ago
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.

"Stand tall across time - Qutub minar"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Qutub minar is one amazing attractions in Mehrauli area of south Delhi. A must go for everyone visiting Delhi. With lush gardens and old historical monuments and structure, it's a popular destination. Camera and videography is allowed. People can do wedding shoots and photography here. A family attraction. But try not to visit it on weekends because it's really crowded. Also very short distance from metro station

This place is hardly 1km away from the Qutub Minar metro station. One can take auto rickshaw to reach the destination from the metro station. Beside the Qutub Minar there are other beautiful architecture which one can see.

"Heritage glory"

  • 4.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
Among the heritage buildings of Delhi, Qutub Minar, with its lofty structure, stands apart. Its tower welcomes one & all from quite a distance. Its surrounding is so good that a walk during evenings is refreshing. Unfortunately, visitors are not allowed to go up the stairs inside, may be due to a stampede that occurred couple of years ago. But with strict security measures, it need be revoked for the delight of tourists ,.

"Qutub miner"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Jun 12, 2017
Qutub miner is a very good place in Delhi. From the miner we can see the beautiful city. But nowadays people are not allowed to enter Inside the miner because it has weekend. I would like refer all the parents to take their children to visit this place because they can learn a lot about the history.

"It is Famous momentum, sign of victory"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Mar 8, 2017
Qutb Minar, (also spelled Qutub Minar) at 73 metres, is world's tallest rubble masonry minaret. Qutb Minar, along with the ancient and medieval monuments surrounding it, form the Qutb complex, The tower is located in the Mehrauli area of Delhi, India. It is thought to have been a direct inspiration for the Qutb Minar in Delhi, which was also built by the Ghori (Mamluk) Dynasty. Made of red sandstone and marble, Qutb Minar is a 73-metres (240 feet) tall tapering tower with a diameter measuring 14. 3 metres (47 feet) at the base and 2. 7 metres (9 feet) at the peak. Inside the tower, a circular staircase with 379 steps leads to the top. Qutb Minar station is the closest station on the Delhi Metro.
An inscription over its eastern gate provocatively informs that it was built with material obtained from demolishing '27 Hindu temples'. A 7 m-high iron pillar stands in the courtyard of the mosque. It is said that if you can encircle it with your hands while standing with your back to it your wish will be fulfilled.
