one of the first places we visited when we moved to Delhi was Qutab Minar. One can only imagine how did artisans work in those medieval times to get this towering huge monument up !! we have been here 2-3 times, two times with my kid and one time just me and my husband. when we went as a couple, it was more of spending time together rather than seeing the monument.

there is a entrance fee which is only 10/- per adult and for children below15 years, entry is free. you can carry camera inside, including ur SLR.

For kids, its an open place where they love to run and jump. the first thing my son did was he removed his shoes and ran on the soft grass and slopes, and yes we ran after him. after a good round of running, jogging and hide and seek, when we could not keep up with his energy levels anymore, we dragged him from there to actually see the qutab minar. after which it was more of an educational tour. my son wanted to know why was it build and what purpose did it serve (thank god for the information boards), we were able to answer some queries, rest google baba helped us :)

it was warm the day we went, so we easily spent 2-3 hrs inside, looking around and clicking pictures and reading all information boards. there was a school tour also on that day. lots of children from different schools were present, and we could see them chatting and gossiping.

there are audio guides that are available, if you have bigger kids, you can sure use them. i have heard they are very good. The history is told like a radio play, with different historical characters talking to each other which makes it interesting for children to listen and understand.

its an educational as well as a fun visit. for smaller babies and toddlers, kids, there are huge lawns. for elder ones, nothing short of educational tour with fun. be sure to carry food and water for ur little ones. we only saw chips and cold drinks inside. not sure if there were other things that were available.

definitely one time visit with kids if you are visiting Delhi :) rest you can of course keep going back again and again if the place interests you.
