Mehtab Bagh, Agra

#2 of 7 in Parks in Agra
Take a stroll around Mehtab Bagh, a Persian-style garden complex sitting directly opposite the Taj Mahal. Separated from the famous building by a river, the garden reflects the same idea that the spiritual resides in the symmetrical. This particular layout, called a charbagh, involves the division of the ground into four smaller parts with water features and walkways. The pleasant garden also offers a good view of the cultural wonder opposite, often with fewer people obstructing your photos than at the building's front.

  • Great views on a clear day of the Taj Mahal. Peaceful to visit - just what you need in Agra. No hassle just a couple of kids outside asking you to buy something or take a camel ride. Entrance fee curr...  more »
  • Yet again, one from my Agra diaries(I still have a lot of places to write about). This place is just across the Taj, in fact this place gives a good vantage point for amateur photographers to get some...  more »
  • Go for the garden, stay for the view. This is the spot where Shah Jahan wanted to build a Black Taj Mahal, as his own mausoleum. Now it has been converted to a garden with a low priced ticket, go just...  more »
  • Ideal place to have a relaxing time overlooking Taj Mahal. Some of the valuable historical structures are under danger. Relevant authorities to take necessary action.
  • View the Taj Mahal at sunset The day before visiting the Taj at dawn we went to the Mehtab Bagh. The view across the river is stunning and the setting sun really shows off the Taj at its best. Lots of bird life to be seen on the river and in the gardens.
  • The view of the Taj from the opposite side of the Yamuna River. It is a very good place to see the Taj in a quiter environment. Very few people come here and therefore you can take your time viewing the Taj from a distance. The road to the Bagh is a little crowded and the distance from most of the popular hotels. The best time to go is in the evening.
  • Very Nice place! From here you can get nice view of The Taj. The road towards this place needs improvement. Still all Taj lovers should visit this place for unique view. It lies north of the Taj Mahal complex on the opposite side of the Yamuna River, in the flood plains It's not over crowded which attract me most.
  • Great views!! Particularly if you go to watch the setting sun!! The place in itself is poorly maintained so a bit of task walking around. 5 stars for the location and views and minus 1 for the upkeep!! Could be much better but then the sun set views make up for it!!!
