Standing tall inside the Allahabad Fort, built by Akbar, is the polished sandstone Ashoka Pillar. This 10.6 m high pillar dates back to 232 BC. This pillar has several edicts. It was earthed by the order of the great Mauryan king Ashoka.

The inscriptions of the pillar praise the victories of Samudragupta, another great Mauryan king. A Persian inscription of the Moghul emperor Jahangir and inscriptions about other contemporary kings can be seen on the pillar.

Visitors need permission from Commandant, Ordinance Depot, Fort, Allahabad (phone: +91 532 2621854) to visit Ashok Pillar.
