Anangpal Tomar II ruled Delhi in the mid-eleventh century. He gave Mihirawali (now Mehrauli) name to modern Delhi which means path of Mihir. In middle of 11th century, he built a fort called Lal Kot (literally Red Fort), in which the Qutb Minar stands today, and founded a town. He also removed the famous Iron pillar of Delhi on which are inscribed the eulogies of Chandragupta Vikramaditya (r. 375–415 CE)
