Do not erect a pillar in any place

 “Do not set up a pillar for yourself” Devarim 16:22

“Pillar” means a stone structure around which all would gather.

Even to worship God this is forbidden since it was the way of heathens.

Whoever transgressed and erected a pillar in any location, even to worship God is liable for lashes.

This applies in all places at all times for men and women.
