Pillars of History

There are ages, there are eras; there are dynasties and rules. There are milestones to mark them all and there are pillars where rests the history. Who decides which one is the tallest? Is it all that meets the eye? Iron pillar of Delhi moved from Udayagiri to Delhi by Anangpal where Qutub Complex was later built.
