Get to know the Mehtab Bagh (Moonlight) garden and enjoy the best views of the Taj Mahal. On this tour you will also discover the Itimad-ud-Daulah tomb, called the “Small Taj”.
We will collect you from the hotel and head towards the Itimad-ud-Daulah tomb. This mausoleum is located on the banks of the river Yamuna and is commonly known as “the small Taj”.
During our visit we will discover just why the tomb is considered to be the precursor to the famous Taj Mahal. What relation does the nobleman that lies in the mausoleum have with the emperor that constructed the Taj Mahal decades later? We will hear this and other stories while admiring the detailed architecture of this white marble building.
We will continue the tour in the Mehtab Bagh garden. This square park was constructed on the banks opposite the most celebrated monument in India: the best views of Taj Mahal can be caught from its grounds.
During the visit you will learn about the history of the Mehtab Bagh. Legend has it that Sha Jahan, who designed the Taj Mahal, wanted to construct a black marble replica here. Is there any truth to this rumour?
Stroll around the symmetrical gardens at your own leisure and take photos of the Taj Mahal. When the tour has finished we will take you back to your hotel.
