Mehtab Bagh, Agra

3.9
#2 of 7 in Parks in Agra
Nature / Park
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. Put Mehtab Bagh into our Agra trip itinerary builder to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Agra.

  • The best vantage point of the Taj Mahal at sunset, a beautiful garden where you would have to erect the black marble mausoleum, twin of the white one. An unforgettable view of the Taj Mahal at sunset pink lights, the best pictures and definitely less people.

  • wonderful park. we can see the beauty of Tajmahal from here. we can spent time with family. this is 10 km away form Agra railway station. 5 km away form Agra fort and 12 km away from Tajmaal. we can reach here by taxi or y auto from either Agra fort or form railway station.
  • Good place for late afternoon view of the Taj Mahal. However there is not much facilities provided for the 200 INR paid which I did not even get a receipt. This place is good for that special view which in my opinion is better than the normal view from the monument itself. For me due to this I would say pay only if you think it's worth it...to me I think since it's not that touristic the money goes into the officers pocket since no official ticket was issued even after asking for it.
  • This garden is located at the opposite side banks of the Yamuna. One should visit this quite place to get the unobstructed view of the Taj Mahal from the back and that's about it. This has a lot of historical significance but I feel the relevant authorities can do much better to upkeep this place. The walk paths were uneven and needed much better upkeep and the same can be said for the the ruins of a building near the Yamuna banks. The ruins are protected by a so called rope but visitors don't care and run in to sit, rest and click selfies. One can drive here in their car as well, but be careful of unwanted guides and additional parking charges. Best alternative bis to take an Ola or Auto with a fix rate to stop for 30 odd minutes here.
  • Nice view of Taj Mahal across the river. The landscape and architecture have long lost its historic charm. Rearranged as a small grove and seating area near the river.
  • Nice place to hanging out with friends and family.you can see the place where Black taj Mahal should have been build also you can see the taj mahal and red fort.

Where to stay in Agra

Agra offers a broad selection of budget and mid-range hotels, many within easy striking distance of the Taj Mahal, the main reason to visit the city. The area just south of Taj offers arguably the least expensive accommodations, while the streets splitting off from Fatehabad Road boast a high concentration of mid-range hotels. Keep in mind that free Wi-Fi remains unavailable even in most of Agra's nicest hotels--expect additional (and possibly steep) fees for limited Internet access.
