Rambagh

The Rambagh is said to have been constructed by Babur. It is commonly believed that when Babur died in 1530, his mortal remains were temporarily kept in Chaubureja, a place close to Itimad-ud-Daula tomb till these were taken for the final resting place at Kabul. The original name of the bagh was Aram Bagh, which was later corrupted to Rambagh under the Marathas when they occupied Agra from 1775 to 1803 AD. The first historical mention of this garden site as the Bagh-Nur-Afshan led some historians to believe that this name had been derived from a garden (Bagh –Gul- Afshan or Nur Afshan) in Kabul. The garden was in good maintenance under Jahangir as confirmed by Tazuk-I- Jahangiri. It gets additional support from the paintings and epigraphical evidence found in some of the remaining structures of this garden. Colossal walls enclose the garden with corner towers crowned by pillared pavilions. The garden is divided into quarters by stone-paved pathways. On the northeastern side of this building, there exists another terrace, from which steps lead to a Hammam. The rooms of the Hammam, now in ruins bear evidence of a vaulted one roof. Immediately north side of this garden, there is a row of ruined houses with a gateway, built of red sandstone at each end.

The layout of the garden complex is not on the formal Char Bagh pattern but confirms rather to the pattern of Bagh- Hasht-Behisht. In the garden three levels have been maintained, one for flowers and vegetables, second for flower beds, with fine stone paved terraces and kiosk, and the third one has structures, terraces and tanks.
