“Not to miss World Heritage Site”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

The ruins were one of the highlights of our trip especially the minaret which was in an amazing state of preservation and so intricately carved. But it is a very popular and crowded site so don't expect to be wandering around by yourself!

“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.
