The Kangra Fort situated at a 20 KM distance from Dharamsala on the out start of the Kangra Town.
The fort is entered through a small courtyard enclose between two gates.These gates possess no archaeological interest. From here a long and narrow passage leads up to the top of the Fort through the Ahani and Amiri Darwaza, both attributed to Nawab Alif Khan, the first governor of Kangra under the Great Moghuls Some 500 feet from the outer gate the passage turns round at a very sharp angle and passes through the Jahangiri Darwaza.
The Jahangiri Darwaza, however, has entirely the appearance of a Muhammadan building and, judging from its name, would seem to have been raised by Jahangir after his conquest of the Fort in A.D. 1620.
The Amiri and Jahangiri Darwaza received serious injury in the great earthquake, but could be repaired.

You chose an excellent angle, this cares for depth and perspective.
The wall and stairway leads us perfect to the corridor and arch.
It really is amazing that you have not only got a sharp photograph but one that is so well composed.
Wonderful picture, Tfs.
