Kos Minars

Kos Minars : a series of milepost markers built during the reigns of Sher Shah Suri and later Mughal emperors. The Kos Minar is a solid round pillar,around 30 feet in height that stands on a masonry platform built with bricks and plastered over with lime. Though not architecturally very impressive, being milestones, they were an important part of communication and travel in a large empire.
