Page 80:
Photograph of an iron shaft of 24 feet tall with a Sanskrit inscription placed in front of the Qutb Minar in Delhi.
This rust-proof mass originally stood in front of a Vishnu temple located somewhere in front of a mountain, certainly during the 5th Century in Bihar, hundred miles to the east.
It was placed here, in front of the Quwwat al-Islam mosque, as a symbol of the defeat of Hinduism.
Partial translation: “He, on whose arm fame was inscribed by the sword, when in battle…the king who attained sole supreme sovereighty in the world…having the name of Chandra, carrying a beauty of countenance like the full moon…having in faith fixed his mind upon Vishnu…this lofty standard of the divine Vishnu was set up on the hill call Vishnupada.”
