Qutub Minar Now Opens In The Night Dazzling With Led Lights

What Makes It Awesome?

To give a brief background, the Government has taken a unique initiative in terms of mausoleums in the city. To encourage night tourism, they are illuminating some of the mausoleums till late in the evening. When we parked indented Qutub at about 6:45 p.m. the next evening, there was a sizeable crowd of all sorts in the mausoleum. A golden glow covered the complex. The minarets and the remnants of the old structures looked ablaze. The soft LED lights accentuated the carvings and golden illumination bound the space in a halo. It was difficult to believe that we were not visiting some prehistoric piece of architecture in the Middle East. LED bulbs not only illuminated the Minar and the other structures, but they also brightened up the passages and pathways across the complex. The place did not look shady post sundown any longer. No wonder there was a sizable number of the family crowd even late in the evening. The evening lighting is on from 7 pm to 10 pm every evening. Minister Sri Prahlad Patel has also inaugurated a new facility on Qutub premises. There is a QR code now that can be scanned for easy purchase of entry tickets. Standees holding the QR code has been placed at strategic positions at the entry gate. We tried it this time and it worked like a breeze. Moreover, you pay less in this process. A ticket for an Indian visitor costs Rs.35 if you are using the QR code. One has to pay Rs. 40 per person if paying via cash at the ticket counter. Needless to say that apart from the lower pricing, the QR code spares people queuing up time in peak season. Kudos to all the efforts to promote tourism in our favourite city Delhi. We are spellbound with the new look of Qutub. It is festive and romantic at the same time.
