To get the back view of the Taj from across the Yamuna river you can visit the Mehtab Bagh. The roads that lead to this garden is small and terrible. If all you want to see if the backside view of Taj then you don't need to go inside this garden, just walk to the end of the street that... More

this is a modern garden grown in place of the original Mehtab Bagh and at the time of our visit was in very poor condition. But this is a place that you could sit at ease and look at the Taj..far from the maddening crowd!

It's a good place with a low fee (100 INR at the time this was written) to see Taj Mahal without all the tourist and hawkers on your back. You can easily hang around and relax, which won't be that easy in other parts of Agra. You might be pointed to a side road that goes all the way to... More

One can skip the stampede visit to Taj Mahal and visit Mehtab Bagh. This place offers the magical view of The Taj where one can peacefully enjoy just the beauty of Taj Mahal. Also, Mehtab Bagh has the foundation of the "Black Taj Mahal" which could never built.

Our guide brought us here for a sunset viewing of the Taj Mahal. What a wonderful first view of the Taj. The garden was beautiful and very peaceful, no hawkers inside so you could just absorb the beauty and peacefulness of this experience. Go there!

Beautifull garden, and especially the view for Taj Mahal in the sunset was really interesting and fascinating. Definitely go in the evening time, when the sun is going down.

This is worth a visit to simply take in a different perspective of the beautiful Taj Mahal. Best in the cooler months - avoid in summer when temperatures soar over 40C+. A lovely setting, and would be very picturesque at sunset.
