Agra Tourist Attractions- Ram Bagh

By Amitkumarana Subscribe to RSS | December 23rd 2011 | Views:

The Mughals have gifted India their wonderful knowledge of architecture, governance and many other aspects of the society. They revolutionized the way things were built in India, with the knowledge which they had bought with them. The Mughals originated from Central Asia but they were heavily influenced by Persian architecture and literature and so, they have built many different monuments, buildings, gardens and other important sites in accordance with Persian architecture and design. The Ram Bagh Mughal Garden in Agra is one of the examples of the above stated fact.

The Ram Bagh garden in Agra is the oldest Mughal garden in India and so many tourists visit it during their Agra tours. It was constructed by the first Mughal Emperor, Babur and it is modeled after the famous garden in Iran called Chahrbagh e Abbasi. Many well known Agra tour packages will include a trip to this garden. It is located at a distance of about 5 kms from the famous Taj Mahal and is an important landmark of Agra tourism. It was completed in the year 1528 AD. Before your Agra tour package, make sure that this beautiful garden is a part of your itinerary.

The Mughal Emperor Babur was significantly influenced by the Islamic beliefs and so, he incorporated the Islamic traditions in many of the things that he built. The Mughal Gardens are examples of this belief of Babur. He created the gardens as replicas of gardens in Paradise as described in the Holy Quran. It is a historical garden and was very important to the Mughal Emperors. Some legends say that the Mughal Emperor Akbar proposed to his 3rd wife in this garden. Apparently she was employed as a gardener. This garden is also known as Aram Bagh (Garden of Rest), Bagh e Nur Afsan (The garden of Light) etc. You should certainly visit this place during your Agra tour.

Many of the people prefer travelling to Agra via Delhi and they often opt for ‘Delhi Agra tour’ organized by Delhi based travel agencies. This Mughal garden is a part of the itinerary of any Delhi Agra tour package. We would recommend that anyone who goes on Agra tours should not miss this garden, as it is the perfect example of how the Mughals built their gardens in India.

The structure present in the garden today dates back to the reign of the Emperor Jahangir who renovated the garden. He employed his wife Nur Jahan as a designer for the garden, as she loved gardening. He was impressed by her skills and she planted many precious flowers in the garden. This place, like many other Mughal sites of Agra, is situated near the River Yamuna. The government of India has tried to preserve this garden through various maintenance projects.

Hence, we can see that Agra tour packages are not just about buildings and monuments, in fact, they offer a lot more than that to all the tourists from around the world, who go on Agra tours.
