Khuni Darwaza
Built by Emperor Sher Shah Suri in 16th century, as one of the gates of his city Shergarh, Khuni Darwaza or Bloody Gate is located on the main Bahadur Shah Zafar Marg just opposite to Maulana Azad Medical College. It is a double storeyed majestic gate and is largely constructed with grey stone except for the frames of its windows, which are made up of red sandstone. The gate got its present name after the first war of Indian Independence in 1857 when a British officer named Captain Hudson killed the remaining progenies of the last Mughal emperor Bahadur Shah Zafar whom he captured from Humayun's Tomb. The bodies were displayed for public viewing before taken to Kotwali. Local tales tell of blood dripping from the ceiling of the gateway after the massacre that followed the reoccupation of Delhi. It is the same place where Dara Shikoh's head was also displayed a couple of centuries ago when Aurangzeb murdered him in their battle of succession for the throne of Delhi.


Khuni Darwaza


There are also stories that even today the blood drips from the ceiling during the rainy season. However, the possible explanation is that when rainwater gets in contact with the rusted iron joints of the gateways' ceiling, it becomes slightly reddish in color. The gate was earlier known as Kabuli Darwaza as the road from the gateway lead to Kabul (Afghanistan) in those days.
