Tajmahal Gardens, India (Tajmahal Vacations)

Tajmahal Photo Gallery; Sunset View


Style: Persian
Divided Into: Four Parts
Canals: Two (crossing in the center)
Flowerbeds: Sixteen
Trees: Cyprus and Fruit-bearing Trees

Tajmahal Gardens are set up in a Persian style, running from the main gateway to the base of the Tajmahal. The Persian style of gardens, with emphasis on flowers, fruit, birds, leaves, symmetry and delicacy, was introduced in India by Babur. These gardens were based on geometric arrangements of nature and no attempt was made to give them a "natural" look. Another architectural attribute that has been followed in the case of the entire monument, especially the gardens of the Tajmahal of Agra, is the usage of number four and its multiples.

Since four is considered the holiest number in Islam, all the arrangements of Charbagh Garden of Tajmahal are based on four or its multiples. The entire garden is divided into four parts, with two marble canals studded with fountains crossing in the center. In each quarter portion, there are 16 flowerbeds that have been divided by stone-paved raised pathways. It is said that even each of the flowerbed was planted with 400 plants.

The trees of the Taj garden are either that of Cyprus (signifying death) or of the fruit bearing type (signifying life) and even they are arranged in a symmetrical pattern. Tajmahal occupies the north end corner of the garden, instead of being in the center. Infact, at the center of the garden, between the Taj and its gateway, is a raised marble lotus-tank with a cusped border, which reflects the Taj in its waters.
