The emergence of iron that has higher strength than gold, silver and copper heralded the Iron Age in India since 1200 BC because of its capability in architecture, engineering and defence applications. The corrosion resistant Iron Pillar of Delhi known as rustless wonder by scholarls of to-day, the famous Damuscus sword made of Wootz steel, the iron beams of Sun Temple, Konaraka, Trident of Lord Shiva of Tanginath Temple, District Gumla, Jharkhand state etc. are the testimony to the skills of the ancinet Indian artisans.
