In ancient times, iron was extracted and processed so accurately and with the highest quality of wrought iron used especially due to the abundance of metals as opposed to their availability today. The application of high content of phosphorus was considered as a unique technique used during the process of Iron making in those ancient years where the core of the iron was mixed with charcoal and the slag iron particles reduced to steel in just one step.

Some theories also state that since this Iron Pillar has high content of Phosphorus and the complete non existence of Sulphur or Magnesium, it prevents the pillar from corroding.

Others also state that the slag surface coating used in this Pillar after being forged and the application of clarified butter coating during its usage may have also resisted any corrosion. The Iron Pillar is also seen with Brahmi inscriptions dating back to the 4th Century containing six lines that proclaims the greatness, bravery and victories of the Gupta dynasty.

These inscriptions only marvels a King named Chandra but it could refer to any of the Royal Gupta clan which includes either Chandra Gupta I, Chandra Gupta II aka Vikramaditya or even Samudra Gupta, hence, it is unclear and probably buried and lost amongst the bygone generations but whomever it might be, it is evident that the pillar was erected during the Gupta period.
