A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Qutub Minar lies within the enchanting Mehrauli area of Delhi. Made up of five distinct storeys, its awe-inspiring architecture stands at 73-metres tall.

A marvel of the 12th century, the red sandstone tower of Qutub Minar towers over a stunning area just a few kilometres South of the eclectic chaos that is Delhi. The surrounding area encompasses funerary buildings and the impressive Alai-Darwza Gate a masterpiece of Indo-Muslim art built in 1311. Here, you’ll also find the Quwwat-uI-Islam mosque, the oldest in Northern India, constructed from reused materials of the Brahman temples.

Built back in 1193 by Qutab-ud-din Aibak to make the defeat of Delhi’s last Hindu kingdom, each of the tower's storeys is marked by a projecting balcony. From the bottom up, the first three storeys are constructed from red sandstone, with the fourth and fifth made up of marble and sandstone.

The Qutab Minar is open 7 days a week, from sunrise to sunset. For Citizens of India, entry into the attraction is charged at just 30 rupees, while foreigners pay 500 (under 15’s can enter free of charge). You can view both the Qutab Minar and the Quwwat-uI-Islam on many of our India tours including many other enchanting Indian sights and wonders.

In the courtyard of the Quwwat-ul-Islam mosque, you’ll find a 7-metre tall iron pillar, which is said to grant your wishes if you encircle it with your hands while standing with your back to it. If you’re feeling lucky then it’s definitely worth a try!
