Qutab Festival

Qutab FestivalLocated at the Southern part of the city of Delhi, Qutab Minar is a five storey tower made of red sandstone. It is wide near the base but tapers towards the top. The hallmark of Qutab Minar is that it is the tallest free-standing stone tower in the world. With an imposing height of 76.2 m, it is indeed an awe-inspiring piece of architecture. The tower was the brain-child of Afghan invader Qutub-ud-din-Aibak and he built the foundation of the monument. From then onward, the monument has been witness to many an event in the history of India and it also has documented in its own unique way, changes of historical importance.

Today all out effort is being made to salvage this historical monument from the ravages of history. During the month of November-December a 3-day festival is organized on the premises of Qutab Minar. The festival is meant to highlight the magnificent monument. Showcasing the finest cultural art forms in the country, the festival brings this historical monument at the forefront of national and international importance. World famous artists perform at this beautiful festival and people from all over the world come here to enjoy it.

The festival is not only an attempt to restore the heritage monument, it also helps in the preservation of classical Indian art and tradition. Some of the greatest performers in India perform here every year. The festival is surely going to be an experience that you will not forget in a hurry.
