The Buland Darwaza is a very famous structure of the Mughal architecture, and since the built it has been regarded as the Gateway of Pride, Victory, and Magnificence of the Mughal Rule. The Buland Darwaza is built mainly of the used and traditional building stone of the Mughals- the red sandstone, along with buff sandstone. As additional and decorative bearings, the top of the main courtyard are built of black and white marble along with engraving patterns of coloured stone.
