More on Himayat Bagh


A noteworthy feature of the Himayat Bagh is the Barra Darri, an underground water chamber erected by Ivaz Khan. It is hailed as a marvellous feat of engineering, owing to the fact that it created a natural air conditioning system that could bring down the temperature of the entire area when operated. The system, although inoperative, is so sought-after that is still studied about today. Barra Darri also houses the office of Fruit Research Station.

Himayat Bagh was set up during the rule of Mughal emperor, Aurangzeb in the 17th century. During that time, the northern wall of Aurangzeb's palace was destroyed due to dampness and exhalation, which proved unhealthy to him, and so, he ordered the portion in front of his office to be filled in and converted to fields. Later, the field was turned into a garden by one of the officials in his court and named as Himayat Bagh.
