Take a stroll around Mehtab Bagh, a Persian-style garden complex sitting directly opposite the Taj Mahal. Separated from the famous building by a river, the garden reflects the same idea that the spiritual resides in the symmetrical. This particular layout, called a charbagh, involves the division of the ground into four smaller parts with water features and walkways. The pleasant garden also offers a good view of the cultural wonder opposite, often with fewer people obstructing your photos than at the building's front. Take a look at our Agra trip itinerary app to schedule your visit to Mehtab Bagh and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

Mehtab Bagh reviews
Viewing the Taj Mahal at sunset from across the river provides a different sensation than viewing it from the actual site. There is a mystical sense of peace and majesty- and quiet... This definitely.... more »
This is on the opposite side of the Yamuna River. Previously it was derelict land and it could be entered free of charge - how things have changed. The area offers spectacular views of the Taj Mahal..... more »
It’s a nice view of the Taj, but for the price to get there and get inside... better to just hire a boat outside the Taj and view from there, since you can’t walk down to the water anyways. Plus they make you leave just before 6pm so it’s not worth it for sunset. The garden is nice but it could be way better if maintained properly. Better to view from the water near the Taj or take a boat!
I love it. So charming. You feel so close to a beautiful building that you feel like visiting it again again.
