The Kashmiri Gate or the Kashmere Gate is one of the gates to enter the walled city of Delhi. This gate is located to the north of the city of Shahjahanabad (which is now called “Old Delhi”). The gate was built by a military engineer Robert Smith in 1835 and has gained its name as it is the doorway of the road that leads to Kashmir.
