Lahori Gate is one of the Gates of Lahore, the capital of Ranjit Singh’s great Sikh em- pire. It is now the capital of a smaller Punjab, the most populated province of Pakistan. It is one of the ancient cities of the subcontinent and has a rich historical and cultural heritage.
The early history of the city is cloaked in obscurity and it is pretty difficult to establish the exact date of its foundation. It was a town of not much importance in the first and second century A.D. and was ruled by Rajput princes. In the eighth and ninth century, it became the capital of a powerful brahman family, who in the tenth century, were invaded by Sabuktagin and his son Mahmud Ghaznivide.
The Lahori (or Lahori Gate) was named after the city of Lahore itself. It was the quarter of the town that was first populated when Malik Ayaz, the viceroy of Sultan Mahmud Ghaznivide, rebuilt the town in early eleventh century. As Loha in Punjabi means ‘iron’, it is suggested that there were once many blacksmith’s workshops based just outside this gate.
