    Alamgiri Gate

    Alamgiri Gate

    Alamgiri Gate built by Mughal emperor Aurangzeb in 1674 at the same time as the Badshahi Mosque opposite and located at the western end of the fort Lahore-Pakistan. The Alamgiri Gate is the entrance

    of the Lahore Fort. Inside the gatehouse you can buy souvenirs and softdrinks. From the gate a ramp leads up to the Old Musamman Burj Gate on the left, and the royal kitchens on the right (now occupied by the police and closed to the public). This takes you up to the level of the courtyards, underneath which is a maze of dungeons, storerooms and offices. The central rooms are dark-only those along the walls have windows. This area is also closed to the public. It has two semi-circular bastions where lotus petal design adorns its base. It opens to the Hazuri Bagh and faces the Badshahi Mosque. The gate is one of Lahore's most iconic monuments, and once featured on Pakistani currency.

    What is Around:

    Allama Iqbal Tomb, Samadhi of Ranjit Singh, Hazuri Bagh, Lahore Fort, Moti Masjid (Pearl Mosque), Badshahi Mosque, Horses Park,

    When to Go:

    October to April is the best time to visit Lahore. It is only 217 meters above sea level, so it is hotter than Islamabad, and can get very hot in summer.

    How to Reach:

    Lahore is connected by air, rail and road to the other cities of Pakistan, the airport is some five kilometres (three miles) out of the city centre. It is 292.9 kilometres (182 miles) from Islamabad on the Grand Trunk Road (Nation Highway G.T. Road) and 382.6 kilometres (287.7 miles) from Islamabad on the Motorway/AH1 (4 hrs 3 min) a driver of 4 to 6 hours or a train journey of 5 to 8 hours. The Indian border is 29 kilometres (18 miles) from Lahore along the Grand Trunk Road going east, but it is open only twice a month to foreigners, owing to Sikh unrest in the Indian Punjab. You can fly directly from Lahore to Delhi.
