A hidden wonder of Agra – Mehtab Bagh
Agra was the commercial and residential hub of Mughal Kingdom and was also the home for world’s mightiest architectures. They created Taj Mahal, Mukya Fort and various other monuments that represents our culture and heritage. One amongst them is the hidden wonder of Agra, Mehtab Bagh. It is a quadrilateral garden situated to north of the Taj Mahal complex and the Agra Fort, opposite to the Yamuna river. The garden complex is square in shape and is spread up to 25 acres. It is perfectly oriented and aligned with the Taj Mahal but during the rainy season, the ground becomes partially flooded and becomes a barrier for tourism.
There were eleven gardens in total, built by the Mughals and the Mehtab Bagh, built by Babur, was the last one to be constructed. It was later owned by the Raja Man Singh of Amber. Watching Sunset from Mehtab Bagh is one such experience that is never missed by any tourist visiting Taj Mahal. The evening turns out to be more romantic when the dazzling moonlight falls on the Taj, resembling Shajahan’s love for Mumtaz.
The fountain works makes the garden extremely beautiful. So tourists visiting Mehtab Bagh, should never miss the breath taking view of Taj and the Sunset. Take a guided tour in Agra and revisit the past!
