Shah Alami Gate
Shah Alami Gate is one of the gates of the Walled City of Lahore located in Lahore District, Punjab, Pakistan. This door, which became known as Shah Alami after changing from Shah Alam, was located near Lahore’s busiest and most financially well-known market. However, as a result of the passage of time, it has collapsed.
This gate was named after Aurangzeb Alamgir’s son Shah Alam. He was very famous in Punjab for his generosity. While its old name was Bhairwala Darwaza. It was burned to ashes during the partition of the subcontinent. And now only his name remains.
The area in which this door is located is very important from a historical point of view. And many monuments, mansions and ancient markets are located here. Among them, Rang Mahal, Soha (Sarafa) Bazar, Kanari Bazar etc. are worth mentioning. While Asia’s number one cloth market Azam Cloth Market is also located in the same area. Similarly, historical mosques like Sunehri Mosque (Golden Mosque) and Oonchi Masjid are also located near this gate.
