Delhi Gate

The gateway shows a vigorous style of architecture combined with beauty of detail and grace of finish. The upper part of the outer arch, which must have been a grand structure, has fallen down; only the piers are standing. Below the former, there is a lower arch, of very fine proportions, this span being 13 feet 3 inches, and the height from the pavement 28 feet. The arch is built of a reddish stone. The passage through the gateway was covered, but the roof has fallen down, and now unseemly buttresses of a comparatively modern date are to be noticed flanking the passage on either side. Farther up, there are three arches, which again are modern, but which show the original roof-level. Beyond these arches is the inner gate of the same design as the outer one. The covered passage originally continued beyond this gate as well, and rooms for accommodation of guards were built on either side. The roof of the passage has fallen down, but the remains of arches which supported it may still be traced.
