This is the garden you will find opposite the Taj Mahal which was made by Emperor Shah Jahan. He called this the moonlight garden or a place from where he could best admire the Taj. This was the same place where he wanted to get a twin of Taj Mahal built in black Marble to be a mausoleum for himself but could not put hs plan into action. From recent excavations another central garden along with the remains of as many as 25 fountains have been found here. This garden is almost always filled with people especially during the afternoons and the evnings who sit here and admire the beauty of the Taj Mahal while the cool breeze from the River Yamuna soothes them.

The gardens of Mehtab Bagh are under 2km from the homestay. Lying on the flood plains of Yamuna River, the charbagh is situated on the north of the Taj Mahal and overlooks the Agra Fort on the opposite side. An morning walk to Mehtab Bagh is a great way to start your day!
Our next stop was Mehtab Bagh, just on the opposite bank of Yamuna of Taj Mahal. The place has nothing much to see except a great view of the Taj Mahal along with the mehemankhana of both side in a single frame!!
One amazing place to be with ur soulmate for a long chatty walk in this part which is just behind the Tajmahal. Lovely place !!
An unmatched view of the Taj early in the morning, it wasn’t called ‘moonlit pleasure garden’ by the Mughals for no reason. There are plenty of trees and orchards in the surroundings of the Taj and the Agra Fort. A stroll here will be the best way to start your Agra trip.
