The Kashmere Gate (Hindi: कश्मीरी गेट) is a Delhi Metro station in Delhi, on the Red and Yellow Lines. It is a transfer station between the Red Line on the highest upper level and the Yellow Line on the lowest level.[1] It was named on 25 December 2002.

The Kashmere Gate Metro station services the historic Kashmiri Gate area of Delhi, and is currently the largest metro station with HUDA City Centre proposed to supersede it. The giant station has over 5 floors. It has facilities like restaurants, fast food centres, pay phones, toilet complex etc.

Phase III connections[edit]

Under the Delhi Metro Phase III plan, the Violet Line is being extended from its current terminus to meet the Yellow and Red Lines at Kashmere Gate station. This will provide an alternative route between Central Secretariat and Kashmere Gate, alleviating crowds on the heavily used Yellow Line.[2]

The following will be the stations between Mandi House and Kashmere Gate :

  • ITO
  • DELHI GATE
  • JAMA MASJID
  • LAL QUILA
