Shah Jahani Gate

There is a wide stone approach with strips, rising from Amar Singh Gate to Shah Jahani Gate. The approach is so prepared specially for easy approach by riding horses.

This double Gate with interior platforms on both sides and double arches are the typical features of Shah Jahan's monuments built in lakhauri bricks with lime. The structure is veneered and dressed by sandstone slabs.

The facade of the gate has series of deep rectangular blind niches. The top is also covered with rectangular large panels superimposed by beautiful merlons and flanked by engaged turrets on both sides with solid turrets (burgis) crowned by tall stone finials.
