It was the main plaza of the zenana apartments, or royal ladies' residential quarters, with the Khas Mahal to the east and red sandstone arcades on the other three sides. The garden was separated into compartments in an intricate geometrical layout and there was a marble-paved platform with a fountain in the center.

This garden was recognized for harvesting the finest grapes and flowers throughout the year, as the name says.
