"Qutub miner"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
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.

"Qutub Minar"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Feb 24, 2017
Qutab Minar is a soaring, 73 m-high tower of victory, built in 1193 by Qutab-ud-din Aibak immediately after the defeat of Delhi's last Hindu kingdom. The tower has five distinct storeys, each marked by a projecting balcony and tapers from a 15 m diameter at the base to just 2. 5 m at the top. The first three storeys are made of red sandstone; the fourth and fifth storeys are of marble and sandstone. At the foot of the tower is the Quwwat-ul-Islam Mosque, the first mosque to be built in India. 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.

"Average place made dirty by our people"

  • 4.0/7
  • Posted Feb 4, 2017
A overall good place, nothing very great, over populated and a bit dirty, but overall 6/10 for the place. Good to spend 3hours there. Guard will chase visitors out by abusing if time of opening is over. Overall a so place .. No washrooms or if they were there I can't find them. Population is the biggest problem of our country ... However beautiful a place may be crowd makes it dirty in 2minutes

"Oldest city of Delhi Sultanate"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Jan 25, 2017
Qutub minar is an important landmark in the history of Delhi located in the South Delhi. It is the place where the first city of Delhi was built and is an iconic structure.
It is the highest brick minaret in the world built more than 900 years ago by the ruler of the **** dynasty "Qutub Ud din't Aibk" which was completed by his son in law Iltutmis.
The compound has a lot of structues and is an important site to understand the architecture of that time.
