Mehtab Bagh, Agra

3.9
#1 of 9 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.

  • It’s a nice view of the Taj, but for the price to get there and get inside... better to just hire a boat outside the Taj and view from there, since you can’t walk down to the water anyways. Plus they make you leave just before 6pm so it’s not worth it for sunset. The garden is nice but it could be way better if maintained properly. Better to view from the water near the Taj or take a boat!
  • I love it. So charming. You feel so close to a beautiful building that you feel like visiting it again again.
  • It's a very good place to see the Taj Mahal but you have to pay 300Rs. Would be better if they take care of it. Apparently, was an amazing garden until some Indian people start to take part of the ruins to build other things. Looks like now they have started to plant new trees. Hopefully in a few years will look beutiful
  • Beautiful unobstructed views of the Taj Mahal. Worth the visit especially if you don’t have time for the full Taj experience. Much cheaper than visiting Taj as well.
  • Disappointed not cleaned, managed and sophisticated arrangements. Very odd to see that security guards asked me to submit tripod of camera and allowed camera inside. If camera is allowed then what matters of tripod will go inside. Anyhow seems govt should do good development and sight seen arrangements with good showcases etc. Anyways, the view of taj Mahal was outstanding there must be some high point viewing arrangements must be needed.
