Turqman Gate in DelhiThere are very few monuments in India which are well kept. Turqman Gate is one of those monuments. The exact date of the construction is not mentioned anywhere. Of the 12 existing gates, Turqman Gate was in the southern part of the old walled city.

The Turqman Gate has been named after one of the pioneers of Sufism in India, Hazrat Shah Turqman Bayabani. The saint used to reside in Delhi in the late 13th century. His tomb was built way before Shahjahanabad was even conceived. Turqman Gate is located in front of the Ramlila Ground. This place can be reached by taking the esplanade road. The Turqman gate, like the other gates of Shahjahanabad is square in plan. The only difference is that, it has comparatively high arched openings. Locally known as Turqman Darwaza, it is situated in one of the densely populated areas of the capital. Pay attention while you pass near it or there are chances you might miss it completely.
