1.The largest Indian national flag on the tallest mast was hoisted on Saturday at the historical Pahari Mandir here by Union Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar in presence of Jharkhand Chief Minister Raghubar Das and other leaders. The earliest tallest flag pole was in Faridabad. While Pahari Mandir is known for its historical temple of Lord Shiva, it was also used by the British to hang freedom fighters.

2.Incidentally, the sturdy 293-feet flagpole has been procured from Walmart’s India unit in Pune. As a mark of respect to those freedom fighters, the national flag is traditionally raised at the temple every Republic Day and Independence Day.
