Q. Which of the following pillar edict/s was/were moved to Delhi by Feroz Shah Tughlaq?
Choose the correct answer from below given codes:

[A] 1 only

[B] 1 and 2 only

[C] 2 and 3 only

[D] 1, 2 and 3

Answer: B

Explanation: The majestic free-standing Ashokan pillars probably signify the axis of the world (axis mundi) that separated heaven and earth.

  • Pillar edicts have been found at Lauriya-Araraj, Lauriya Nandangarh, Rampurva, Nigali Sagar, Sarnath, Topra, and Meerut.
  • It is rather interesting to note that two pillars, one from Topra and the other from Meerut, were shifted to Delhi by Feroz Shah Tughlaq.
