  • Mainly this is entrance of gour. This is very historic place.
  • Dakhil or Salami Darwaza was the main entrance of Gour Fort and was built by Barbak Shah probably in 1425 AD. The name "Dakhil" means entrance and is located on the northern side of the fort. Whereas "Salami" means to salute. It was a common practice to honour dignitaries by a Gun Salute at the time of their entrance. Must have been a grand sight in the haydays of Gour. Even now the forlorn structure stands proud in its past glory. A must visit for the visitors.
