Mademoiselle Delphie Mennant, a French lady scholar, visited Sanjan in 1901. She has written a scholarly book, Les Parsis, about the history, religion and culture of our Parsi  community.
In an article in a Parisian magazine she wrote: “We are astonished to find that the Parsis have, up to now, neglected
to raise a commemorative monument to mark the place of the landing of their ancestors and the place where the Sacred Fire burnt for the first time in India.”
Her suggestion was taken up by Shams-Ul-Ulema Dr. Sir Jivanji Jamshedji Modi, then secretary of Bombay Parsi Punchayet.
A committee was appointed in 1910 and they decided to build the Memorial Column at Sanjan.
On Roz 8 Mah 6 1289 Y.Z. i.e. February 15, 1920, the Sanjan Stambh was inaugurated.
Three special trains were run to take a huge contingent of Parsis from Mumbai. A special train was also run from Surat, which was taken advantage of by residents of Surat, Navsari, Bilimora, Valsad, Udvada in large numbers.
Vada Dasturji Khurshedji Minocheherji performed the Jashan. Shams-Ul-Ulama Dasturji Darabji Peshotanji Sanjana led the Humbandagi.
