“A must see in dehli”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2012

Probbaly the most interesting historical monument in Delhi. It's amazing how that tower made of bricks is still up after all these years. The entire temple complex is also pretty well preserved and enjoyable to visit

“Facinating Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2012

This is a facinating site, there are lots of things to look at and take a local who knows the history. There are audio guides if needed.

“Just sheer height considering period it was made”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2012

I will not say it is superb, but considering in the period it was made to take it this height must be difficult task. more over in delhi all monuments are generally boring they do not have any action, bunch of beggers no beer bards not great restaurants like in western world, so yes it is there and you need to see.
