About Mehtab Bagh

The ‘Moonlight Garden’ as it is popularily known, Mehtab Bagh is an extension of the Taj Mahal garden on the other side of the Yamuna river bank. It was originally built by Emperor Babur as one of the eleven Mughal gardens built long before Taj Mahal was conceived.  It was later supposed to be an extension plan to the black Taj Mahal, which Shah Jahan planned to construct as his tomb, before he was imprisoned by his son Aurangzeb.

Recent excavations revealed a huge octagonal tank furnished with 25 fountains, a small central tank and a baradari on the east.  Frequent floods and villagers extracting building materials nearly ruined the garden, till restoration projects were taken up in the 1990s.

For visitors, there is an entry fee of Rs 5 for Indian citizens as well as SAARC and BIMSTEC countries and $2 for foreigners.
