Early morning visit to Mehtab bagh is even better than the night viewing of Taj. You get unparalleled views and the can admire the beauty of taj for hours. No crowds, excellent pictures!! Don't miss this. I've not posted any pictures here of the view from this place, because I want you to go and experience it for yourself. Trust... More

We arrived in Agra in late afternoon and went here for our first view of the Taj Mahal before our next morning visit to the monument. Mehtab Bagh (Moonlight Garden) sprawls north of the Taj, on the opposite side of the Yarnuna River and likely offers excellent photo ops on clear days. But haze embraced the Taj when we were...

Mental Bagh a century old garden is located on the northern shores of the Yamuna River. The Mughal garden was build in the early 1500's as the viewing place of the Taj Mahal.

A train delay meant we had to adapt our plan, we couldn't get to the Taj in the early morning. However, Mehtab Bagh was a nice relaxed way to view the Taj from the opposite bank. The drive to the east bank is full of streetlife, movement and vibrant colours. A real photographic feast if you're quick enough. Yes there... More

There are great views from the Taj from here. However you get ushered out before the sun has set and way before the moon has risen.

A small park on the opposite side of the river which offers you a distant but clear view of The Taj Mahal. A great spot to get an idea of the breathtaking beauty that awaits.

Loved the gardens. Give a different perspective on the Taj. Go for sunset and watch the Taj change colors as the sun sets in the distance. The place is not crowded and auto rick-shaws are not expensive. If you're in Agra and looking for an extra activity I would definitely recommend Mehtab Bagh..

We visited this site at sunset to view the Taj Mahal from the opposite bank of the river. Very interesting to see the recently discovered site. And what a view of the Taj. Takes the breath away!

I visited during sunset on a perfectly clear day in February. It sits across the river from the Taj Mahal, and provides a perfect view of it. The total scene also includes a few other adjunct and mostly derelict buildings, and trees from which hundreds of birds emanate at sunset with the Taj in the background... just a perfect and...

Probably the best place in Agra to go for. It is a big open garden, just at the back side of Taj. The view is really eye-catching. One can enjoy as much time as he wants without any extra restrictions or security. Me and my family really rejoiced being here. We visit here on day one, and went to visit... More
