So many special sights in this one area. I'm so very pleased that we had a knowledgeable guide. Don't think that I've seen so many ex-religious sites with so few steps between each one.

Qutab Minar is a soaring, 219 foot high tower, built in 1193 by Qutab-ud-din Aibak immediately after the defeat of Delhi's last Hindu kingdom. The architectural designs of pillars and buildings are worth seeing. A must see attraction for those interested in history and culture.

Qutab minar is the tallest brick minaret in the world. For a budget traveller, You can take metro to Qutub station and from there auto to Qutub complex. It situated outskirts of Delhi. Build 2000 years ago. In the complex you can see Qutub Minar, Iltutmish's extension, Alai Minar, Alai Darwaza, Iron Pillar, Iltutmish tomb, and Masjid too.

The minar itself is huge and something not to be missed. Wish the complex was better maintained. The ruins were interesting too.

One of the nicest temples I have visited. An old Buddhist temple from the 6th century, converted by the Muslims in the 12th century. Delhi’s tallest tower is absolutely beautiful and the entire area is very peaceful. A must do when in town.
