It was 20 years ago when I last came here on a number of occasions - it is one of those places where one can escape the chaos on the streets and embrace some of the history. This time we went on a very busy Sunday and it was chaotic with a huge melee of people and vehicles. At least paying through the nose for the foreigner's entrance rate cut out some of the queuing! Fortunately the site is quite large so there was a reasonable amount of space inside. I know memory plays tricks on one, but the site looked smarter than I recollect that it used to be. It seems to make an ideal outing for the locals for a family outing on a Sunday, so I would recommend avoiding weekend visits.

A beautiful site which teaches you about the historic relationship between Muslim and pre-Muslim Indian populations and orient you to the ancient leaders. Gorgeous tower!

The place is quite, clean and pleasant. Better to have an online ticket from ASI website to avoid queue. It will save lot of time.
The kutub minar is standing tall from years and yet look strong with red stone.
the iron pillar is also a proof of ancient scientific developments as it didn't get corrosion yet.
The other incomplete minar made by allowdin khilji is interesting too as it become mostly black.
Overall a good place to visit and well maintained.
