About Mehtab Bagh

Mehtab Bagh is a hidden gem of Agra that is situated on the opposite bank of the Taj Mahal. Its literal translation in Urdu means “The Moonlight Garden.' Originally built by Babur, it was later converted into a moonlight pleasure garden by Shah Jahan to view the Taj Mahal. While the symbol of love can be seen at any time during the day, but at night, its beauty is unmatched, which led to Shah Jahan reconstructing these gardens. Mehtab Bagh has a four compartment design (the char bagh complex) and lies within a perfect square shape. The little-advertised garden is the perfect example of Mughal grandeur. With exhibited walkways, reflecting pools with fountains, and shaded pavilions nestled within trees, fragrant flowers and native bushes, it made for one excellent site. Did you know that the myth of black Taj that is the exact black replica of the Taj was planned to be constructed here?
