Near the Jai Stambh Chowk stands the Kaiser-e-Hind Darwaza. Built with the support of the people of Raipur in 1877, it was meant to honor Victoria as the new Empress of India (Kaiser-e-Hind). Most parts of this ornamental gateway have been pulled down, and the facade incorporated in Ravi Bhawan, a commercial complex. A little distance away from the Kaiser-e-Hind Darwaza is the ornate Jawahar Gate, once the entrance to Philips Bazaar, now renamed Jawahar Bazaar.
