One of the two Ashokan pillars in Delhi is at Northern Ridge. It stands on the road between Mutiny Memorial & Hindu Rao Hospital. Built by Ashoka during ancient times, transported to Delhi in the 14th cent by a curious king & then interpreted by the Orientalists.
Here’s a video which talks about this pillar – as we explored the Landmarks of the Revolt of 1857 at the Northern Ridge!
Much closer to Pir Ghaib (shown in the previous episode)..there’s this massive Baoli (step-well) right behind the Hindu Rao Hospital. This was used to provide water to the 14th century hunting-lodge and observatory and other nearby areas. Happy Exploring!
