Delhi Gate


Delhi Gate (locally pronounced as Dilli Darwaza) is situated in the fortification wall towards the east-facing Delhi city, which earns it this name. The gate was built during the Mughal era. Delhi Gate was once the main and only road that led from Lahore to Delhi.

It is one of those famous gates of the city of Lahore, which is very busy with the movement of the people because of the establishment of Lahore Railway Station outside of this gate.

A road leads to Lahore Fort through this old gate. The present two-storeyed structure of the gate was built during the British period and renovated during the 1980s. Although the gate suffered greatly in the 1947 riots, it has since been renovated and today is in its former glory.
