Mori Gate

Pakistan / Asia

Mori Gate is the Hole in the Wall, the smallest of the 13 historic gates of the walled city.  A Mori gate is invariably reserved for Hindu corpses to be taken through for cremation.  Inside the gate was a holy area where people prayed before the Hindu bodies were removed. It is also a holy spot since Raja Jayapala committed ‘Johar’ (suicide by funeral pyre) here after being defeated by the Afghan invader, Mahmud in 1001.  He had ruled since 964.  The gate is on the south side.  Near the gate is the Victoria Girls High School.
