Mehtab Bagh

Introduction
Mehtab Bagh Mehtab Bagh in Agra is a garden, made on left bank of Yamuna river. It is counted among Agra tourist attractions. Its location is such that it is just on back of Taj Mahal, across the Yamuna river. Those who were not able to visit Taj Mahal on Friday, may visit Mehtab Bagh to see Taj from back side. This garden was the last of eleven Mughal-built gardens along the Yamuna opposite the Taj Mahal and the Agra Fort; the first being Ram Bagh. It is mentioned that this garden was built by Emperor Babur(d. 1530). It is also noted that Emperor Shah Jahan had identified a site from the crescent-shaped, grass-covered floodplain across the Yamuna River as an ideal location for viewing the Taj Mahal. It was then created as "a moonlit pleasure garden called Mehtab Bagh." White plaster walkways, airy pavilions, pools and fountains were also created as part of the garden, with fruit, trees and narcissus. The garden was designed as an integral part of the Taj Mahal complex in the riverfront terrace pattern. Its width was identical to that of the rest of the Taj Mahal. Mehtab Bagh covers the area of 25 acres. It was constructed between 1631-1635. It is one of the most beautiful gardens of the city. Tourist can visit it from sunrise to sunset with entry fees. Mehtab Bagh is located in eastern part of Agra city, East of Agra Fort and North of Taj Mahal (Back side of Taj Mahal). Mehtab Bagh garden is surrounded from a compound wall made of brick, lime plaster and red sandstones. Measuring about 289 mtrs. In length, the river wall is partially intact. Mehtab Bagh was later owned by Raja Man Singh Kachwaha of Amber, who also owned the land around the Taj Mahal. Restoration of Mehtab Bagh began after the ASI survey, in the 1990. A common list of plants was suggested. Some 81 plants adopted in Mughal horticulture were planted, including Guava, Maulshri, Kaner, hibiscuss, citrus fruits plants, neem, bauhinia, ashoka and jamun.The herbage was planted in such a way that tall trees follows the short ones. The park has been reconstructed to it's original grandeur and has now become a very good location to view the Tajmahal.
