English Garden was a re-design by British viceroy Lord Curzon who ordered the restoration of the Taj Mahal who fell into disrepair and neglect during the late 19th century. During the Indian Rebellion of 1857, it was defaced, and precious stones were chiseled out from its walls. Curzon's restoration was completed in 1908. The garden was remodeled with British-style lawns that we see today.
Courtyard is found as you enter the compound. These courtyards are directly connected to the gates. They're also mostly empty (see photos below).
