this is the background of Taj mahal from where you can see the back side of taj and Yamuna river both. A nnice place to visit if you want to explore another side of wonder.

This is the place where Shahjahan was about to build his own Makbara- same replica of Tajmahal in black stone . But due to Aurangjeb he could not do it other then the identifying of the place. the Garden is still in the same way as it was at the time of Shahjahan and this area is called Mehtab Bagh... More

We visited the park to get a different perspective of the Taj. It is a very pleasant park. Can not say it was as life challenging as being close like being in the Taj grounds but nice to get away from the noise and hustle and bustle of Agra. Make sure you ask for your ticket on entry as the... More

pretty view but of course you need to pay to get in. It is nothing but a garden overlooking the Taj Mahal. I guess if you like photography and stuff, it's worth the money but otherwise there is nothing much to see.

This is a wonderful place, although, highly neglected from where the Taj Mahal can be viewed in a completely different manner. See it to believe it.

This is the place to go for a great photo of the Taj Mahal at sunset. We went a bit earlier and wandered around the gardens trying to find a peacock. Could hear them but not see them. You are not hassled once you are in the gardens. It is 100 rupees a ticket to enter. Not many people were... More

A perfect place to view the Taj before you actually visit it. You can get unique photo opportunities/views that you don't get when you are actually at the Taj site. The gardens are lovely and at sunset they were not crowded. Sunset is recommended because of the lighting on the Taj for fantastic photos. The gardens might be difficult to... More

Probably one of the best spot to take photographs for the Taj. Beautiful garden and the river in the middle. Very peaceful and well maintained.
