The Construction was finally completed by 1653 AD. The tomb is laid out in a rectangular shape, and can be approached through a massive gateway which has an arch and alcoves on both sides of it.

3. Mehtab Bagh

1 Day Delhi to Agra Tour by Cab Mehtab Bagh

Mehtab Bagh was originally built by Emperor Babur as the last park in a series of eleven parks on the Yamuna’s east bank. This was long before the Taj was constructed.

The Garden eventually fell into a state of disrepair until it was little more than a huge mound of sand. The park was revived again to protect the Taj Mahal from the erosive effects of the sand blown across the river.

Mahtab Bagh is now fully functional and is now one the best places from where tourists get an excellent view of the great mausoleum. The gardens of the Taj Mahal are perfectly aligned with the ones at Mehtab Bagh, and the view of the Taj from the fountain directly in front of the entrance gate is a special one.
