Reflections of Taj Mahal.
The garden uses raised pathways that divide each of the four quarters of the garden into 16 sunken parterres or flowerbeds. A raised marble water tank at the center of the garden, halfway between the tomb and gateway with a reflecting pool on a north-south axis, reflects the image of the mausoleum. The raised marble water tank is called al Hawd al-Kawthar, in reference to the "Tank of Abundance" promised to Muhammad. Due to its shape, the dome is often called an onion dome or amrud (guava dome). The marble dome that surmounts the tomb is the most spectacular feature.
