Ashoka Pillar Allahabad

Description : The Ashoka Pillar is from where we got the symbol on our rupee coins. I actually enjoyed the sight of an actual Ashoka pillar. The pillar at Allahabad are even said to be transferred to that location by the great emperor Jehangir. There are very few pillars which remain intact even today with all the inscription.
