One of the exclusively beautiful places that Delhi is often seen talking about is the Charbagh garden. Char Bagh Garden basically means “Four Gardens” and that’s what the structure of this tourist attraction represents with four walkways and two water canals. Settled close to East Nizamuddin, this tourist place is one of a kind in the city which is designed as per the Islamic and Persian quadrilateral garden which symbolises the four gardens of Paradise as written in the Qur’an. Covering an area of 30 acres, the garden is a charming place to set your eyes upon and just sit back on a refreshing day. High walls guard the beauty of this garden from three sides, one side being taken over by River Yamuna which has changed its way over the years. Furthermore, there are two gates out of which the southern gate was used by the Mughals and remains closed however the western gate is open for sightseeing tours. Along with that, the eastern wall is blessed with a pavilion with 12 doors which was used for cross ventilation for the summer season. The four squares of this garden are divided into four more squares individually with a water canal piercing through the centre making its way from beneath a Tomb which takes place here. The water makes its way from one corner to other and represents the Islamic belief of water flowing underneath the prismatic Paradise Garden.
