  • Beautiful garden and must see pavilions. It contains 410 fountains and its water system is one of a kind of that time. Fantastic family destination. Huge place, its design and layout is mesmerizing.
  • Another milestone from the Mughal Era, holds many parks, fountains, and diverse but rich horticultural expedition at site. It also carries one of the best model for irrigating the entire plantation in steps. The same water runs the fountains, flows into ponds, and irrigates the entire landscape. It's an awesome historical site and the public often pours in on weekends.
