“One of the best place to see Taj Mahal with river in front”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

I went just before Sunset, to see the color change of Taj Mahal. Apparently, I enjoyed the view of Taj even when there was ample of light. The view of Yamuna river and Mahal across the river are just magnificent. The sunset was not so great as I was expecting. The park (bagh) has a lot of greenery and adds a great atmosphere. One can walk around, sit very close to the banks of the river and stare at Taj Mahal.

“Peaceful Taj!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

Well if you have already visited Taj Mahal once and want to avoid the crowd the next time, you should definitely visit Mehtab Bagh!
It is very scenic and perfect place for guys/gals to pose and take pics ;-)
apart from that you can actually spend a lot of time just sitting and admiring Taj.
This is Taj from a different angle!

“Another great view of Tajmahal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013

Awesome view! A beautiful garden specially the Guava orchard, has a great view of the Taj Mahal, cut across-ed by the filthy, so called river Yamuna, now look like a drain here. But one get a great picture, even the reflection in the filthy river looks great. For those who are more romantic they can just sit down here and watch the great monument, The sign of Love !

“worth the effort”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

Yes the gardens are not exceptional but the views are especially if you want the full Taj experience and some great photo opportunities. We took a chai stop near the entrance and spent a pleasant hal hour chatting to the locals who were very friendly.

“Mehtab Bagh”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

Visit to Mehtab Bagh in the evening is a must for any Taj lover, as the sun sets behind it, the day time marble white Taj turns into black silhouette with deep orange sky, a sight not to be missed and captured on camera.
