Purana Qila:

This image is showing the Feroz Shah Kotla fort which is popularly known as Purana Qilla. It was built in 1354 AD by Feroz Shah himself. The most distinctive feature of this palace is a monolithic tapering column of polished sandstone from the 3rd century B.C. This structure known as the Ashoka Column was brought by Firoz Shah from Ambala to grace his newly built palace. It is the second column of Ashoka measuring 13.1 m in height. The massive thick walls of the fort were built with closely packed blocks of stones joint together with mortar, the rough walls were coated with plaster or covered by a layer of polished stone to give its wall a smooth finish.
