An elegant courtyard built as a pleasant retreat for royal ladies, Anguri Bagh features an open-square design centered on a geometrically patterned garden. Built by Shah Jahan in 1637, the site was famous for its fertile harvests of flowers and grapes and served as the central area of the "zenana," a private zone in which women relaxed and socialized.

  • Amazing place. Built by Shah Jahan in 1637, Anguri Bagh is flanked by the Khas Mahal on its east and red sandstone walkways on its other three sides. As the name suggests, Anguri Bagh was known for its rich harvests of grapes and flowers and was also the central area of the zenana. The garden was meant to be a private area of relaxation for the royal ladies. It is made up of a concrete platform with a fountain in the middle. The garden is divided into various subdivisions with elaborate geometric patterns. To the northeast of Anguri Bagh are structures which were use as the royal bath houses or hamams and were extravagantly decorated with fine wall paintings. Opening Closing Time 6 am to 5:30 pm (Daily) Entrance Fee Rs. 20 (Indians), Rs. 300 (foreigners - a discount of Rs. 50 can be availed by foreigners if they holding a Taj Mahal ticket for the same day) Location Within Agra Fort
  • The large rectangular court measuring about 67.6 m. by 52 m. in front of the Khas Mahal is the garden laid out in the Char Bagh pattern with small hexagonal grids of red sandstone, now called Anguri Bagh. According to Abdul Hamid Lahauri this garden had dwarf plants of sweet fragrance. Most probably grapes (angur) were grown at a later date in this garden which gave it the present name. The garden is attached to the Khas Mahal by Shah Jahan in 1637. On the east below the marble terrace there is a small tank in the centre of the quadrangle marble paved platform measuring 14.7 m. square from which radiate four marble paved paths measuring about 5.5m. wide.
  • Such an impressive place...the architecture, the details... don't miss it!
  • This a square shaped place inside red fort. This place was being used for grape horticulture to produce wine during the Mughal emprors. Currently small square shaped space woth green and red colored small plants are grown here. Two grape crappers are present just to bring the ancient past live. Place is beautiful for photography.
