Fathpur Sikri Revisited

Syed Ali Nadeem Rezavi

Gardens were an essential part of the city-layout during the Mughal period. The four-quartered Mughal gardens, the chaharbagh, the flower gardens, orchards, and kitchen gardens once made this city resplendent. The first of these to be built at Sikri was the Bagh-i Fath of Babur. The gardens and garden sites which are now extant are generally located in the area around the lake. Gardens also survive within the palace area. Some excavated residential structures were also found to have had their own small gardens and flower-beds done in masonry. In total there are around fourteen garden sites within the city walls.
