  • As the name implies (Anguri Bagh, = wine = Garden) this place is an ancient vineyard that is located within the complex of Agra Fort. At the front of the building a typical Jahangir's expensive. Consisting of some form of a symmetrical geometry is divided into four parks where there are rectilinear shaped pond at its Center. Refer to a variety of sources that I read this garden devoted to the women in the Royal environment to rest and relax. The beauty of this garden still can be enjoyed up to this.

  • Anguri Bagh meaning ' Garden of grapes ". It was a private area for real gentlemen. Is located within the Fort of Agra. I didn't see it, grapes or vine. What's there, these days, is a Persian-style garden.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Wiki and Google map can be use to explore all these places, in much better way, unless you want to tan your skin or otherwise plan to visit during winter.
  • Britishers stole gold of here and now it covered with brass and still it looks fabulous we can imagine how it looks when it was covered with gold unbelievable
