Zafar Mahal was a royal summer palace used by the Mughals for the annual Urs of Syed Qutubuddin Bakhtiyar Kaki, a Muslim Sufi mystic. It consists of the palace (built by Akbar II in the 18th century) and the imposing gate (Haathi or Elephant gate) built by Bahadur Shah II in the 19th century. This is the last structure built by the Mughal kings. It is located in a very congested locality and is difficult to locate. It is now in ruins (though the Haathi Gate and Moti Masjid inside) are in good condition. The gate is very difficult to photograph given it’s size and the adjacent dwellings; it required a very wide angle lens and lots of patience to get a shot
