It is an impressive gateway built in 1425 and is an important Muslim monument. Made of small red bricks and terracotta work, this dominating structure is more than 21 meters high and 34.5 meters wide. Its four corners are topped with five-story high towers. Once the main gateway to a fort, it opens through the embankments surrounding it. In the southeast corner of the fort, a 20 meters high wall encloses the ruins of an old palace. In the past, cannons used to be fired from here. Hence the gate also came to be known as the Salaami Darwaza.
