As you enter the expansive gardens of Anguri Bagh, housed in the Khas Mahal in the Agra Fort, you are greeted by a scene of luxuriant vegetation. The region is a great choice if you want to enjoy the peace while learning about the history of the Mughals who once governed the city. The Garden of Grapes got its name since it used to be known for its abundant grape creepers (Anguri Bagh). The Anguri Bagh's surroundings are made of white marble, originally painted in gold and embellished with elegant and beautiful murals. It is a lovely courtyard with an open-square design built around a geometrically designed garden. It was designed to provide royal ladies with a peaceful haven.
The site where Shah Jahan constructed the 'zenana,' a private area where women might unwind and speak, was well known for its copious flower and wine harvests. In the past, royal bathhouses were positioned in the neighboring structures.

As the name suggests, this garden was renowned for consistently delivering the best grapes and flowers. It was designed to provide perfect seclusion for the royal women while acting as a beautiful getaway or paradise garden. Hammams, or imperial bathhouses, with breathtaking royal blue and gold wall paintings, were located to its northeast.
