Witnessing many chapters of Delhi, few of gates have survived ages.
Shahjahanabad was covered with 14 gates when Shahjahan transferred his capital from Agra to Delhi. The Kashmiri Gate built by Shahjahan was used to prevent mutineers to enter the city during the mutiny of 1857. The walls were damaged by cannon balls.
The structure, Ajmeri gate of Delhi is built with materials bought from an older city and this gate is named so because it opened towards the Ajmer city and still remains the same even today.
