What to see in Delhi

Kashmiri Gate

Kashmiri Gate
Located near the Inter State Bus Terminal (ISBT) on the north of the walled city, Kashmiri Gate was one of the important gates of Shahjahanabad as the royal processions of emperors used to pass through the gate on their trips to Kashmir or northern India. However, when the British came to this walled city, they strengthened the walls and gates of the city as a precautionary step to counter alien attack. In the process, they fortified Kashmiri gate in 1835 and made it a double gateway later. Thus the gate became the only gate of the city with double openings, one for entrance and the other as an exit.


Kashmiri Gate


Kashmiri Gate is historically important because during the 1857 war of Independence, the site was the scene of intense fighting. The fighters fired canon balls from the ramparts of this gate on the British army causing causalities. The English army in order to retake Delhi finally had to blow up the gate with much difficulty. Later when the British developed the Civil Lines area, Kashmiri Gate became the commercial center of Delhi.

Today, the gate is situated near a busy thoroughfare and a marketplace hardly noticed by passersby. However, one can still see the damage on the gate caused by the British bombardment.
