The iron pillar of Qutub Minar in Delhi is nearly 24 feet tall and weighs 6 tons. This pillar is made of wrought iron. Recent studies into the structure have revealed that the pillar was crafted with the use of forge welding. Though a marvelous structure but it is well known for an ancient mystery. The pillar stands in the Quwwat-ul Mosque and was constructed in 1192. It stands among many ruins found in the area. The mosque is an testimony of Islamic India. But the pillar is much ancient then the other structures surrounding it. But onlookers will not be able to guess its age. Though the iron pillar was forged about 1600 years ago and moved to Delhi nearly 1000 years ago (even the mosque was built). Though such a pillar should have fallen to dust due to erosion and rust but till date the pillar stands tall. Though some of the other pillars in the locality are found in a dilapidated condition this is not the case with the Iron Pillar of Qutub Minar.
