A 21 feet high Ashoka Pillar made in Jodhpur would adorn the MLIRC Belagavi.

The pillar has already reached Belagavi which took about 6 months to make. There is an 18 feet high similar Ashok Pillar at Sharad Singh Maidan of Jaisalmer. But the one in Belagavi is 21 feet.

The work on the pillar was done at Shikargarh, Jodhpur by Ranjit Singh Rathore whose sculptures adorn many war museums in the country.
