New Parliament Building: The much awaited new Parliament House of India will be inaugurated by the Prime Minister on 28 May 2023. A historical tradition is being revived on this historic occasion. On Wednesday, May 24, 2023, Home Minister Amit Shah told a press conference in this regard that after the inauguration of the new Parliament House, a sengol would be installed near the chair of the Lok Sabha Speaker. This Sengol was ceremoniously given by the people of Tamil Nadu to the first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru in August 1947 as a transfer of power. This Sengol has since been kept in the Nehru Gallery of the Prayagraj Museum (Allahabad Museum). It has been brought to Delhi. He said that this new Parliament House is an attempt to connect our history, tradition, civilization and cultural heritage with modernity.

During the Chola period, Sengol was most important at the time of the coronation of the kings. It served as a spear and flagpole.
