Qutub Minar was grand, and there are ground to explore around the ancient minaret. Many local Indians visit this monument, and I visited in the cool season when foreign visas were restricted. If you come from outside India, spend a little more to purchase the foreigner entry pass - this is like the express line pass as Disney. You have your own separate entrance line and it takes a teeny fraction of the time. Placards inside are also in English so you can read about the history of the grounds. Golden hour before sunset is a great time to visit. I enjoyed this beautiful site - it left an impression on me.

Excellent attractive one of the best interesting tourist spot in Delhi. Another interesting beside the Minar is an unfinished base of a tower which was supposed to be a larger in size version of the qutb minar. Located on right corner of the campus, make sure you don't miss it.
One can only imagine how marvelous it would've looked if completed.

The Qutub Minar, got laid its inception in 12th century , is a 72.5-meter tall Minaret and 'victory tower' that has conjoined the part of the Qutb Complex. It is a UNESCO world Heritage site in the Mehrauli area of South Delhi, India. It is speculated that a similar Minaret, has been sited in the Ghur Province of Central Afghanistan, was built a decade prior to the Qutub Minar.

The height of Qutub Minar is 72.5 meters, making it the tallest minaret in the world built of bricks. The tower tapers, and has a 14.3 metres (47 feet) base diameter, reducing to 2.7 metres (9 feet) at the top of the peak. It contains a spiral staircase of 379 steps.

The inscriptions suggest that it was began by Qutub ud-din Aibak in 1198 and completed by his successor Iltutmish in 1215, although the 2 upper tiers were rebuilt later.

I really rekindled the idea of walking down the memory lane and rejoicing in recollection of arts and artifacts for the History Project.

Must visit, if you are in Delhi. However, again such a brilliant masterpiece but so mismanaged. Ticket system is so outdated that so much crowding happened on this Christmas.
