The Taj Mahal, Agra: 255 reviews and 620 photos


The gardens between the gateway and the main buildings are divided into four parts by water-channels crossing in the centre, which are supposed to represent the four flowing rivers of paradise.

Each of the four quarters of the garden are divided again into four flowerbeds (now lawns), separated by raised paths.

From the Quran: "Such is the Paradise which the righteous have been promised: it is watered by running streams; eternal is its fruit, and eternal is its shade."
