Mehtab Bagh, Agra

3.9
#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. Take a look at our Agra trip itinerary app to schedule your visit to Mehtab Bagh and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • This is the place where they wanted to place the black Taj Mahal. Unfortunately this never got there. We came here the depth is 72 and were here all alone. You have here a very nice view of the Taj Mahal and can make nice pictures. The garden itself everything. Entrance fee is 300 rupees.

  • I went to this place. I went to visit this place. I found this place very good. The whole system was very good here. Cleanliness was very good here. It turned out very nice to me. I used to come around with a whole family. I went here, so I liked the atmosphere here. All of you have requested that you are going to roam here and enjoy here.
  • Best view of Taz away from all the mad rush in the beauty. Garden also coming up in a beautiful way... appreciate the restoration work being done there.
  • Lesser visited by Indian tourist. From here one can see Taj from other side of Yamuna. Best time to visit is by evening. Sunset hue is amazing and lots of photography option. One can spend hours here. Do reach early as entry close by sunset. So it close between 6pm and 645 pm depending on season. There is enough parking. Entry fee is nominal 15 rupees.
  • Very good garden. Very nice view to Taj Mahal from here. Not much crowdy. Ample space for parking. Very nice
  • I'm lovint it to spend time in parks n greenery area. And this place is really nice if you want to enjoy it and have some time to spend. The taj back view is good. 2 wheeler parking is not too good but it's fine. Clean area.
