If you're in Delhi it's a good place to visit and spend about an hour. Lots of it is in ruins but the main minaret is attractive and it's amusing trying to get a photo of a plane flying past it to combine the old with the new.

This is a place you must visit amd pay for a tour! If you go it's ok, but learning about the different changes in religion and power throughout the years and all the different influences and how to find them is amazing!

It is a place that one ought to go with like minded intellectual friends. There are 2- 3 monuments in this place - the khilji gardens, an iron pillar, and of course, the Qutab Minar. One doesn't need a guide or any travel manual around this place, though the entry fee is a rip off. Once the tallest building in... More

Great spot to visit with lots of places to take interesting photos. Hard to find some of the information signs. If you're a foreigner make sure you ask where the place to buy tickets is! There was a huge line for locals, but a separate spot with almost no line for foreigners. Price for entry is 500 rupees.

The usual Indian rip off, if your foreign don't bother. If you do go a tuctuc can take you round the back to take photos then drop you back at the metro.

When I exited Qutub Minar metro station, tutuk drivers were asking where I am going and offer 30 indian rupees, some 20 indian rupees to Qutub Minar. I opted the first driver who approached me, at first we agreed 30 indian rupees because he said will... More

It's not my cup of tea. It's out of your way and there are so many nicer and cheaper (this is now 500Inr!!!) attractions. Skip it and relax and enjoy at Hauz Khas instead!
