Its a beautifully crafted passage to enter the fort. You either have to walk or use local transport like rickshaws. Can't take your personal vehicle inside.

Massive entrance to the "Golden Fort" is very impressive indeed. One can only imagine the problems any attackers must have had trying to enter the fort.
