Mehtab Bagh

The Mehtab Bagh garden was the of 11 Mughal-built yards along the Yamuna opposite the Taj Mahal and therefore the Agra Fort; the primary being Araam Bagh ( Ram Bagh ). It stated that this garden built by Emperor Babur (d. 1530). It also recorded that Emperor Shah Jahan had classified a site from the crescent-shaped, grass-covered floodplain across the Yamuna River as a perfect location for viewing the Taj Mahal.

Its width was just like that of the remainder of the Taj Mahal. Legends attributed to the travelogue of the 17th-century French traveller Jean Baptiste Tavernier mention Shah Jahan’s wish to create a Black Taj Mahal for himself, as a twin to the Taj Mahal; however, this might not be achieved as he imprisoned by his son Aurangzeb. This myth had been further fueled in 1871 by a British archaeologist, A. C. L.

Carlyle, who, while discovering the remnants of an old pond at the location had mistaken it for the inspiration of the fabled structure. Thus, Carlyle became the primary researcher to note structural remains at the site, albeit blackened by moss and lichen. Mehtab Bagh later owned by Raja Man Singh Kacchawa of Amber, who also owned the land around the Taj Mahal.

This crescent-shaped garden is taken into account the final word spot for viewing Taj Mahal. If you’re into photography, you need to visit this garden. Unfortunately, Mehtab Bagh just appreciated for this feature. There are tons more to the present yard than it meets your eyes and ears. Here is everything you would like to understand about this garden.
