Francis Bacon said and we quote, "God Almighty first planted a garden. And indeed, it is the purest of human pleasures." Long stretches of verdant greenery, stunning architectural setting, skies filled with shades of blue; why wouldn't gardens be a tourist's first choice to visit on a trip?
Majorly known for tourist destinations like Taj Mahal, Agra Fort and Fatehpur Sikri; Agra, is most surprisingly home to a large number of beautiful parks and gardens, planned according to the Mughal Architectural designs. The Mughal love for gardens is well-known, and the beauty of the ones they built, legendary. There were gardens built for rejuvenation and there were tomb gardens, conceptualized as earthly versions of Gardens of Paradise. These gardens are not only home to exquisite varieties of flora and fauna, but also associated with legends and folklores that make them a treat for the history lovers. Apart from the serene sights and the quiet they provide to their visitors, these gardens are also very appealing places to visit for connoisseurs of art, who love to appreciate the skilled artisans and marble cutters at work.
