Ram Bagh, Agra

Home » Destinations » Agra » Attractions » Ram Bagh

Also known as Aram Bagh or Bagh-i-gul Afshan, Ram Bagh was conceptualized and built by Babur, the first Mughal Emperor in India in the year 1528. It is situated just 500 meters from the Chini ka Rauza, 3 kilometers from the Tomb of Itimad Ud Daulah and around five kilometers from the famous Taj Mahal of Agra,

The sprawling magnificent garden is divided into four sectors that are inlaid with paved pathways and canals. It symbolizes the Islamic concept of Charbagh or the garden of Paradise on earth.

The water in the canals is from river Yamuna and is delivered through three cascades built over three terraces. There are two pavilions facing river Yamuna which also have underground basements or tahkhanas that provided refuge to the royal families in the hot summer months.

The garden is exquisitely landscaped and has a large number of crisscrossing waterways and fountains. As it wore away with the passage of time, it was renovated by Begum Nur Jahan, the wife of Mughal Empror Jahangir.
