Qutub Minar Photos & Video – A Sight To Behold in New Delhi

The Qutub Minar is a sight to behold

I’ve seen pictures of this thing on Instagram in preparation for my golden triangle trip to India. The Qutub Minar is a UNESCO world heritage sight located in New Delhi India.

New Delhi is a tough city as your token white guy. Everyone wants to charge you 200x and not one will help you for free.

Don’t get me wrong, I love India. But it’s not an ideal place for a first time traveler as you’re going to need a bit of a backbone and you’ll have to keep your wits about you.

If you want to get around the city, pay for a proper taxi at the airport to your hotel then arrange a car to drive you around the city at your hotel. It will save you a lot of money, time and stress.

Anyways, if you’re in New Delhi there are quite a few things to check out, one of those is the Qutub Minar. It’s as cool and weird in person as it is in any picture.

Qutub Minar Pictures

The Qutub Minar from any angle seems to tilt back and away from you.

 

The Minar as it appears from the first entrance to the complex. It was a beautiful April afternoon. Not too hot and not too cold. You could really get a nice view of the Qutub Minar. It has a haze in person when looking at it from far away.

I took about 40 pictures of this thing from all sorts of angles. It’s so tall, I had trouble fitting it into the frame. I wish I had the camera I have now instead of the G7X.

Here is what the Qutub Minar looks like close up if you’re standing right in front of it.

Want to go inside the Qutube Minar? In the past you used to be able to, but now its locked it off. This is what the gate at the bottom of the tower looks like.

Qutub Minar Conclusion

This tower again is more weird and impressive in person than pictures do it justice. Easily one of my favorite spots in New Delhi India that I strongly suggest you check out.

Most travelers visit New Delhi for a day before moving onto somewhere else like the Taj Mahal at Agora. But New Delhi has a lot of culture and historical sites worthy of checking out. The Qutub Minar being at the top of my list.
