Gurkha Gate, situated on Chaura Maidan Road, is among the oldest gateways in Shimla. It was built to honour the courage of Gurkha (Nepali) soldiers who gave unconditional support to British government in safeguarding the Himalayan region.

The gate was built as per the orders of Lady Curzon, Vicereine of India. The gateway building had timber-framed Dhajji houses that were built for soldiers. The carvings on this imposing gate and the history behind its construction add to its popularity.
