Heard a lot about this place and visited it for the first time. It was a good place and but the place was stuffed with people. It was very crowded. But the place around india gate was very good.

Indo-Islamic architectural marvel. Begun in 12th century and highlighting a 234 foot tall tower. Surrounded by tombs and featuring a great variety of unique details.

One of the oldest buildings in Delhi, built 1192. Symbol of the arrival of Islam in Delhi. Beautiful design and calligraphy. A guide would be helpful here to explain the full history.

Qutub Minar is a must visit monument in Delhi. I was lucky to spend an entire winter afternoon with a friend in the premises. An architecture marvel, a beautiful historical pride. Well maintained.

you have to visit to understand the old ruining of the place and the stories related to it , heard differently by different people and in their own perspective ignoring the real truth.. still its quite nice.
