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.

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.
