The Qaisery Gate was the gate into the eight markets with the Faisalabad Clock Tower at the centre. It was built in 1857 under the commission of the British Raj in modern Faisalabad, Punjab. The entrance itself is made of reinforced concrete and painted pale yellow and light brown to give it a Mughal look. The gate original markings are still viewable at the top with the name and the date of when constructed.

The gate is directly in front of the Faisalabad Gumti in the older part of the city. The gate and the Gumti is located on Railway Road, a large market for bathroom furniture and many banks.
