Rambagh Gardens


The Rambagh Gardens in Agra has the distinction of being one of the first Mughal pleasure gardens in India. Laid out by Babur, the first Mughal Emperor, the Rambagh Gardens are located 3 km away from the Tomb of Itimad Ud Daulah and 500 meters away from the Chini ka Rauza. The Persian influence can be well discerned in the layout of the garden that was designed in such a way as to resemble paradise (in Islam the garden is considered to be a representation of Paradise).

Also known as the Bagh-i-Gul Afshan, the garden is laid out in the charbagh pattern with four main divisions made by paths and waterways. A number of fountains, channels and waterways adorn the magnificent Rambagh Gardens, which draws its water from the Yamuna River. Noor Jahan, the wife of Emperor Jahangir, made a number of additions to the Rambagh Gardens gardens, which have survived till date. Another interesting feature of this garden is that Emperor Babur was supposed to have been buried here for a brief while before being entombed in his mausoleum in Kabul.
