Sunset view of Taj Mahal

Mehtab Bagh, meaning Moonlight Garden, in Agra is highly popular among the photography aficionados. Most of the tourists visit Taj Mahal during dawn hours to view it at the time of sunrise. Supposedly Taj Mahal looks most beautiful during morning hours. But discerning viewers claim that during sunset Taj Mahal offers quite spectacular & memorable view from Mehtab Bagh, across River Yamuna. Mehtab Bagh is located on the left bank of river Yamuna opposite to the Taj Mahal. The garden complex is a huge square measuring approximately 300m X 300m and in straight alignment with the Taj Mahal. The excavation has revealed a huge octagonal tank on the southern periphery, ‘baradaris’ or pavilion on the east and west, a small octagonal tank at the center and a gateway at the northern wall. During excavation at the site 25 fountains, tanks, pavilions, black marble plinth and Aurangzeb’s letter to Shah Jahan stating devastating flood in 17th century were unearthed. The black marble structure, as per some historians, was an attempt by Shah Jahan to build Taj Mahal-like building, before he was captivated by Aurangzeb. In order to prevent continuous erosion due to flow of Yamuna, more than 25 species of erosion-resistant plants have been planted here. With the passage of time, Mehtab Bagh has started pulling a sizeable number of tourists. It is about 12 kms from the Agra city centre.
