Interesting facts about the Mehtab Bagh
Possibly the most serene sight amidst the chaos of Mehtab Bagh is the beautiful Mehtab Bagh Agra, Mehtab Bagh (Moonlight Garden) was built by Emperor Babur in the early 1500s and the width of the gardens perfectly aligns with those of the Taj Mahal. It was then famously known as the “moonlit pleasure garden” when Emperor Shah Jahan identified it as the ideal site from which to admire the mausoleum.
Mehtab Bagh is a great place to get unique shots of the Taj Mahal. The garden itself also offers many beautiful photo opportunities. The wide open spaces at Mehtab Bagh are perfect for children to play and run around.
A distance between Mehtab Bagh and Tajmahal Agra is 7.5 miles or 6.5 nautical miles.
In 1994, the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) surveyed the forgotten garden and discovered the story about Emperor Shah Jahan wanting to build a black-marble replica of the Taj Mahal on the said ground as his final resting place was a myth.
Instead, what they found buried beneath all the sand was the charbagh complex that seemed to be an important part of the iconic ivory-white monument across the river.
