This is actually a pillar constructed by Mughal Emperor Akbar and it has islamic scripts embossed all over it. It is a false analogy as it has nothing to do with the original Ashok's pillar which is at Sarnath , Varansi. However this also forms a part of the Akbar's Fort( near sangam) which is currently occupied by the Indian Army . Civilians are not allowed. However special permission can be acquired by the OD fort commander to enter the fort and watch this historical monument which is about 500 years old.
