The Phul Bagh, or Flower Garden, is a walled garden complex built as a summer retreat. Its design included 3,500 jets for waterfalls and a series of terraces of decorative pools and tanks. Its formal grounds also contain various buildings constructed under the patronage of Raja Madhav Rao Scindia and include a Muslim mosque, a theosophical college, the Gopal Mandir Hindu temple and a Sikh gurudwara. This combination of buildings was constructed to emphasise the religious tolerance championed by its patron. The fort of Gwalior is visible in the background of the photograph.
