Iron Pillar Travel

The iron pillar stands at the center of the Quwwatul Mosque in the premises of the Qutub Minar and is often regarded as one of Delhi's most curious structures. The structure dates back to 4th century A.D. when it was erected as a flagpole in honor of the Hindu god, Vishnu, and in remembrance of the king Chandragupta II.

The mystery that shrouds the iron pillar is related to how the pillar moved to its present location. The pillar also draws attention to ancient India's accomplishments in metallurgy. Standing 7.3 meters tall, this pillar is made of 98 percent wrought iron and has remained standing for 1,600 years without rusting or decomposing.
