Ashoka pillar made of non rusting iron is situated in the Qutub Minar campus. It is a piece of ancient architecture and skills and this pillar is still standing tall without getting any damage to it or rusting.

Home to the most beautiful step wells in the country,
Jamali Kamali Mosque and a 200 acre park with facets
of heritage peeping at you from every nook and cranny,
Mehrauli is one of those treasure houses where the
