The Kashmiri Gate or double gateway was another gate built by Shah Jahan. The royal processions of emperors and Queens used to pass through the gate on their trips to Kashmir and this is how this gate got its name.
This gate gained strategic importance during the 'Mutiny' of 1857. In the mutiny of 1857, the British used this entrance in order to prevent the mutineers from entering the city.
The guided heritage walk of the area explores the remnants of the pre-19th Century history and heritage of the area alongwith modern structures and developments in the area.
