“Grape Garden”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

This is the grape garden part of the Agra Fort. It was constructed by Shah Jahan in 1637 and divided into geographical shapes within the square of the private ladies apartments.

There were tanks near the palace to ensure the garden was supplied with water.

“Rich History”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Located within the premises of Agra Fort, the anguri bagh or the grapes garden is surely a site worth seeing. There have been contradictory views regarding the history of Jehangir being alcoholic but nevertheless the garden was made for the purpose of making wine. The dungeons are located just beside the garden and you can get some good shots from the fountains located nearby.

“More Wine please”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

It was here that Akbar grew various kinds of grapes for making local wine in the palace. Fiction has it that he even had ice to go with the wine .....and ice was only for emperors, not commoners ! So next time you slip in some ice in your cola, remember you are no less than an emperor.

“Bagh-e-Mai”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2011

The garden infront of the Khas Mahal (Palace) was the place where the grapewines were all around. It has a small pool in the middle and the way it is preserved by the Deptt. is excellent. The view of the Khas Mahal with the Garden enhances it's beauty.
