Pani Gate or panigate is eastern gate, which is also located in the walled or old city. It is said that there were Ajab and Raje lakes, which supplied water to the city, so the gate was named Pani (water) Gate. The gate has wide arches in Islamic style. The gate was restored few years back as some portion of the Gate was collapsed. A room with sloping roof was also added later. On its outer side, above the main arch, there is a metal structure like a nose. People call it ‘Vadodara nu naak’ – a metaphor for the city’s honor.

Location: M.G. Road.
