The Iron Pillar in the Qutab Complex is quite an attraction. You will find people trying to hold their hands by wrapping them around the column. Its been around for centuries and quite iconic.

Located within Qutub complex, this pillar is a piece of work. Dating back to 4th century, this pillar is still rust free, impressive metallurgical skills. Some Sanskrit inscriptions can be found all over this pillar indicating it was brought later here.
