The Taj Garden covers most part of the Taj Complex. This is a Persian style garden based on symmetry and geometrical measurements. The Persian style of gardens, with emphasis on flowers, fruit, birds, leaves, symmetry and delicacy, was introduced in India by Babur. It is said that the Taj Mahal Garden is very closely linked to Paradise. Through the center of the Garden runs the two marble canals with fountains. These canals are lined with Cypress trees that symbolize death. The Taj Mahal Garden is divided into four sections. These four sections evokes the sense of Islamic Paradise, where rivers of water, milk, wine and honey flows. The stone paved pathway divides the flower bed into 16 parts. At the centre of the garden, halfway between the tomb and the gateway, stands a raised marble lotus-tank with a cusped border. The tank has been arranged to perfectly reflect the Taj in its waters.
