“Touring India”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

Part of the first city of Delhi and well worth a visit. It is one of Delhi's famous landmarks. We were on a tour but it can be easily reached by bus or metro station.

“Awesome for twilight photography”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

One of the best times to go here is in the evening for the "night viewing" of Qutub Minar. If you're into photography, this place offers splendid opportunities for twilight photography. Slow shutter speed, clouds making streaks in the picture, the moon shining above the minaret and the deep purple hue of the atmosphere. All these make for some incredible photography at Qutub.

“Well worth a visit - an important and intresting site”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

This is a really well preserved and well maintained site in Delhi carrying a lot of history and meaning. There are signs in English explaining the history of the key artefacts, and the whole area is enjoyable to walk around
