Photo and description
Rambach Garden is considered the oldest garden created during the Mughal times. It is in a beautiful location just 5 kilometers northeast of the Taj Mahal in Agra.
The garden was built by the Mughal Emperor Babur in 1528. And it was in Rambach that he was buried before his ashes were transferred to Kabul. The name "Rambach" comes from the distorted Persian "Aaram Bagh", which means "garden of rest". It is also known as “Bagh-i Nur Afshan” - “garden of diffused light”, and “Aalsi Bagh” - “garden of laziness”. This is due to the legend, according to which the emperor Akbar proposed to his third wife in this garden, where she was a gardener, and lay in it, doing nothing, for six days until she agreed to marry him. It is also known that the famous Jahangir stopped in 1621 in this particular garden, waiting for astrologers to show him the most favorable time to enter Agra, after he conquered the Kangra Fort.
The garden was decorated in the Persian style - the emphasis was on the abundance of sunlight, while the garden has pavilions, gazebos, tall spreading trees that provide enough shade on hot days. Also, the garden is divided into parts by a large number of paved paths, and in the center there are numerous fountains and there is a reservoir from which canals branch off in different directions. The Persian style of the garden represents the Muslim idea of paradise - a beautiful garden through which crystal clear rivers flow.
Two pavilions were built on the territory of the garden, "looking" at the Jumna River (Yamuna, Jamna), in which the emperor's high-ranking guests rested.
