"Kashmiri gate" Delhi Things to Do Tip by Rupanworld

Delhi Things to Do: 853 reviews and 2,092 photos


The Kashmiri Gate was one of the important gates of Shahjahanabad and was built by Emperor Shah Jahan. It was the northern gate of the city and the royal processions of emperors used to pass through this gate on their trips to Kashmir. The British modified the Kashmiri gate in 1835 and made it a double gateway and strengthened it. This made it the only gate of the city with double openings, one for entrance and the other for exit. The gate got more significance due to the intense fighting that took place here during India's first war of independence, the Sepoy Mutiny of 1857. Like most of the gates of the old walled city, it is situated in a very busy area of the city today, near the Inter State Bus Terminus, and is hardly noticed by any passers-by.
