Roshnai Gate or The Gate of Light!!!

Roshnai Gate is situated in the north of Huzori bagh. During Mughual Sikh periods, Roshnai gate was supposed to be the main entry point for the rulers and other nobles. Since river ravi used to flow attached with the northern wall of Lahore fort and badshahi mosque, it was used to be to facilitate the travelers.

The gate was illuminated and to make bright with light so that the travelers can easily identify and approach there. That’s why after that it has been named as Roshnai Darwaza or The Gate of Light. It is the oldest gate and the only one that has been still  preserved in its original shape.
