This fine arched gateway popularly known as pathar darwaja is built with dressed laterite blocks. This gateway was the northern entrance to the ancient fort of Bishnupur. Malla king Bir Singha built it in the second half of the seventeenth century. It had double storied galleries flanking the central passage for accommodating troops. There were also arrow-slits for the archer... More
It is not very grand and many people might not like it. But as it lies very near to a major temple complex of Bishnupur comprising of Jorebangla, RadheShyam, Laljiu Temple etc. one can take a walk through the gate. The gate was made way to the fort of Bishnupur but now it only stands as a testimony to the... More
There are two gates - one slightly bigger than the other with nothing to see beyond them. Erstwhile gates to the now non-existent Palace of the Malla kingdom.

Two gates Boro(Big) & Choto (Small), part of the older fort complex of the Mall kings remain and still tower over the any of the riders. While driving a 4 wheeler through it be careful and the road through it is quite narrow and will not work for two 4 wheeler at same time
Great spot for history lovers. A huge gate built by the kings marking the entrance to their kingdom.
The gate of Old fort, locally known as 'Boro Pathor Daroja' (বড় পাথর দরজা) is a must see things in Bishnupur. It is a very good example of the 'Malla' kinngs war strategy.
When I saw the Large Gateway from outside, it looked like a very ordinary structure compared to some of the temple in the vicinity. It was only when I walked inside the gateway that I felt the magnitude of this gateway. Don't miss seeing the Small gateway which is a few 100 meters away from this one
