  • The shape of the large remaining tower has as interesting story to it so you must go and see it! An amazing historical place I ever visited. The old ruins of the tower and old temples that were once Hindu were interesting to see. I will record the stories and w ill tell to my colleagues at home back. Qutub Minar is indeed an eye catching monument. Its amazing. The tall Minar stands firmly on ground and kisses the sky. Its a must visit monument. Book ticket online to enjoy hassle free entry. You can hire a government approved guide from the main entrance. After 2 hrs of sight seeing if you feel like eating something, you may enter "Qutub Restaurant", not far from Qutub Minar. Food is good there.
  • Best place to visit in the early winter. Beautiful construction , beautiful place to spend time with our families. The winter is the best time to visit as we can see through all places. It is a beautifully preserved historical location. Stunning architecture. Lots of friendly families; good for people watching. Be sure to keep track of your blue entry coin, you will need it to exit; they don’t really warn you of this.
