Delhi Gate




Delhi Gate is the main entrance of the Agra fort, situated on the western side of the fort. It stands as one of the architectural masterpieces of Akbarís period.

Built in 1569, the gate can be reached by crossing a wooden draw-bridge, which connects the fort to the mainland. It has high, extra-strong bastions and battlements with high merlons.

The inner entrance of the Delhi Gate is known as Hathi-Pol or Elephant-Gate. It is protected by two beautifully designed and ornamented bastions.
