Of the eleven Mughal gardens that were first built, Ram Bagh was Babur's idea and was initially called Amar Bagh which turns into a garden of relaxation. Built-in 1528, Ram Bagh was one of the most peaceful places in Agra. It is situated on the banks of river Yamuna and is about 5 km from the Taj Mahal. The idea of ​​the garden was inspired by a Persian garden which represents the Islamic idea of ​​heaven. Therefore, Ram Bagh had greenery along which a river flowed. It has two viewing pavilions that were built in such a way that the cool breeze emanating from The Yamuna and the trees would keep them cool even in extreme summer weather. The Mughal emperor Babur did not spend much time in this garden; He breathed his last here. Before taking his body to Kabul, it was kept here for some time. And it wasn't just him either; Emperor Akbar and his son Jahangir also spent their time in Ram Bagh. The currently restored garden showcases Nur Jahan's skills as a garden designer.
