Nigambodh Gate

Nigambodh Gate
The last of the remaining gates of the old walled city is Nigambodh Gate. Located on northeastern edge the city on the Ring Road near the Yamuna Bazaar, Nigambodh Gate derives its name from the popular Nigambodh Ghat. According to the legend the ghat belongs to the period of Mahabharata. It was on this ghat that Lord Brahma is said to have bathed and recovered his lost memory and sacred books and thus the name Nigambodh Ghat, meaning realization of knowledge.
