Bab-e-Baqi is the door on the eastern side of Masjid-e-Nabwi which faces Jannatul Baqi and is the closest door to the Rawdah Mubarak (the Sacred Chamber).
- The Bab-e-Baqi was installed in 1408 AH and is exactly opposite to Bab-e-Salam which is on the western side.
- This door is to facilitate the flow of people leaving the masjid after giving salutation to the Prophet (ﷺ) and his two companions.
- Note that this door did not exist in the time of the Prophet (ﷺ).
