  the iron pillar
by BerniShand

In the grounds at the Qutab Minar stands an iron pillar which is approximately 1600 years old
It is remarkable because of the purity of the iron and the fact that it does not rust [ unlike my 6 month old wok ]
No one knows how the pillar was cast, and nothing else like it is known. It has not always been here, it is thought that originally it was situated outside a temple in Bilhar
