Bhangi Gate

This is styled as the Sweeper's Gateway; and the story told to account for the name is that at the completion of the Fort a sweeper was immolated. The village people to this day point to a stone in the wall, within a few meters of the gateway, behind which the Bhangi was offered as a sacrifice to appease the gods. The gateway is built in the trabeate (pillar-and-lintel) style, and is probably of pre-Islamic times. The roof of the building has fallen down. The ascent from this gateway is steep and large steps begin, sixty of which bring the visitors to the Delhi Gate, the principal entrance to the Fort.
