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
Once u enter in garden will feel that it's just a normal garden but, another side walk beautiful flat view of Taj just 300 meters far from garden wall more »
The weather wasn’t the best for us, but this is a nice garden to wander and sit in while watching the sun go down. Plenty of photo ops here! Felt semi safe, plenty of kids around looking for money. 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.
