A milestone is a series off numbered markers placed along the road at intervals of one mile. the miles of the milestones in India have long been replaced by kilometers.
The concept of milestones, or distance markers, was probably introduced by Sher Shah in the 16th century. He built distance markers, which were known as Kos Minars, along the Grand Trunk Road (GT Road).
Sher Shah’s Kos Minar recorded the distance in Kos, which was roughly equal to 2 miles or 3.2 kilometers.
Later the British introduced the concept of milestone, where distances were recorded in miles. After the Britishers left Indians adopted kilometer as the distance unit, but the name milestone remained.
