Main attraction is an unobstructed view of the back of the Taj. Garden is pleasant for a stroll but sunset for the view is worth the 100 rupee admission.

Mehtab Bagh in agra should be on every photographer's list. This bagh is actually a Mughal site where Shah Jehan put in a garden to admire his lovely Taj Mahal. Legends also tell us that the Mehtab Bagh was actually the site where Shah Jehan intended to build a black Taj mirroring the white one for himself. History had it... More

Best time to visit is right before sunset. Its on the back side of the Taj across the river and you get some really killer photos from the back side around sunset or even sunrise will be a great time to go. Best time of the year will be ideally during monsoon as the the river is cleaner and has... More

The place has a great history behind it, but it was not preserved well.. Too bad, because seeing Taj Mahal on sunset from here is priceless! Mehtab Bagh (Moonlight Garden) is a charbagh complex that lies north of the Taj Mahal complex and the Agra Fort --on the opposite side of the Yamuna River. The garden complex, square in shape,...

Be there a couple of ours before sunset. The moment of sunsetitself is a bit to late for the best light. Motoriksja drive form Taj Mahal south gate should cost you no more than R 300 for a round trip.

Mehtab Bagh offers a breathtaking view of the Taj Mahal from across the river Yamuna. Visit the Bagh before you visit Taj Mahal to kick start your imagination and prime you before you see the monument itself.

If you want awesome pictures of yours and your loved ones with the Taj Mahal in the backdrop; you needn't go any further than Mehtab Bagh! It also marks the foundation of the Black Taj....on a clear day, you would get a beautiful view of the Taj across the river Yamuna.

If you are visiting Agra and Taj do not miss the view from mehtab bagh, North of taj on the other side of Yamuna it gives a unique view of taj. Specially if you enjoy photography you cannot give Mehtab Bagh a miss. It is under renovation but the gardens are very well maintained.
