Teen Darwaza, Ahmedabad

Teen Darwaza at Ahmedabad is a historical gateway built by King Ahmed Shah I. Completed in 1415 the gateway has three arches which led into a large enclosure, forming the outer courtyard of the palace.



The roadway in the central opening is 17 feet wide, and that of each side arch is 13 feet wide. The height of the arches is twenty-five feet. 



When we visited the place there were some repair work was happening in the area and vehicle movements were not allowed.

It is so hard to comprehend that these beautiful arches were built in the 1400’s and are still in use. It is wonderful that your people appreciate all of the old temples and structures like this and take such good care of them. Preservation of the old is so important to those that follow in the centuries to come.

Completed in 1415 the gateway has three arches which led into a large enclosure, forming the outer courtyard of the palace.so this is about 500 years old , but in good condition still.
