Lahore is known as the ancient city. The second largest city of Pakistan, previously Walled City of Lahore had thirteen gates which including: Akbari Gate, Bhati Gate, Delhi Gate, Kashmiri Gate, Lohari Gate, Masti Gate, Mochi Gate, Mori Gate, Roshnai Gate, Shahalmi Gate, Shairanwala Gate, Taxali Gate, and Yakki Gate.
Now the Lahore Development Authority (LDA) is constructing the city’s main entry / exit 14th gate near Thokar Niaz Baig intersection.
The width of the gate would be 130 feet and height 60 feet.
The chief engineer said the location of the project would be around 100 meter ahead of the police post, He said the project was planned many years ago but it could not be materialised. It was again taken up in the recent days to beautify Lahore’s entry / exit point.
