“The garden.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014

The visit to the taj was amazing but we all couldnt get enough of it we had to see the taj during sunset. So we all went to Mehtab Bagh, a garden at the back of the taj. Although we were not interested in the garden but yes the view of the taj was breathtaking and amazing.

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2014

We arrived late afternoon and the soft light in the beautiful Taj Mahal over the river was less white and more pink. The riverside is accessed through a lovely garden. There were about a hundred people sitting quietly enjoying the view.
We were treated to passing villagers, including a small boy carrying a baby goat and an elderly woman carrying a brass water pot on her head.
I loved this view through the barbed wire separating us from the river area of the monument.

“Best view of taj from this side.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2014 via mobile

Best view of taj from this side. Huge garden in this arid city comes as surprise. Maintenance by government agencies could have been better.

“Nice Park for Additional Taj Views”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2014

This park is a bit out of the way - you will need a driver or tuk tuk to get there, but it does offer some nice views of the Taj from the other side of the river. We were there in the afternoon but I imagine it would be a great place to watch the sunset over the Taj.

“Best place to watch the sunset over the Taj Mahal.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2014

We went in early March so the flowers were already blooming and the garden was a sight to behold. After taking what seems like hundreds of photos we sat down and watched the sunset over the Taj. You can see the color of the Taj slightly changes as the sun sets. A great place to sit and get an undisturbed view of the Taj Mahal.
