The Mughal Emperors of India, were very influenced by their
Persian background. In Persia, the pleasure garden is an important
part of the landscape of every city. The Mughal emperors introduced
the same concept in India. In Islam, the garden is considered
a representation of Paradise, a word derived from pairidesa,
which means land of fairies. Devout Muslims should not only
aspire to reach paradise but should strive to create its likeness
on earth. Therefore the Mughal Emperors laid out many beautiful
gardens to create a paradise within their kingdoms. You can

The Rambagh Gardens in Agra or the Bagh-i-Gul Afshan as they
are also known, were created by the founder of the Mughal
Empire, Babur. Nur Jahan, the Mughal Empress and wife of Jahangir
made further additions to the Rambagh Gardens. The garden
is laid out in the charbagh pattern, with four main divisions
made by paths and waterways. Water is an important part of
the Mughal gardens, since water is considered the source of
life. Water from the Yamuna River, flows over 3 terraces in
a series of cascades. Stairs on either side of the water channels,
fountains, an island platform and two pavilions on either
side of the main water channel, are added attractions of the
