Ashokan Rock Edict
On the main Raja Dhirshain Marg, near the Srinivaspuri locality is the famous engraved tilted rock-face of the Ashokan period, popularly known as Ashokan Rock Edict. Discovered in 1966, the centuries old rock-edict is testimony to the fact that Delhi was an important area even in the time of the Mauryan Emperor Ashoka (273-232 BC). Apart from being a major town, Delhi was also an important junction on the commercial route connecting the major provincial capitals and towns in North India.


The epigraph of the rock-edict consists of ten-lines in the Brahmi script and Prakrit language. Though the writing has worn out but according to the historians it is one of the versions of the emperor's Minor Rock Edicts. It states Ashoka's appeal to his subjects to live a pious life of righteousness, irrespective of their status and position, in order to attain enlightenment. The edict informs the reader that due to the constant efforts of the emperor and his strong belief in dhamma (righteousness), the people of his kingdom (Jhambudvipa) has come closer to the gods.
