The Kashmiri Gate, one of the northern gates in the city walls, is now known as Old Delhi, originally the city of Shahjahanabad built in the 17th century by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan (r.1628-58). The Kashmiri Gate was built in 1835 by Major Robert Smith and was made into a double gateway in 1857 at the time of the Indian Uprising. This gate was blown up when the British retook Delhi during the Indian Uprising of 1857.
