Across the Yamuna River lies the Mehtab Bagh (or Moon Garden). From here you get an excellent view of the Taj Mahal from a totally different angle:
The Moon Garden is supposed to have been the location for the “mythical” black Taj – had it ever been built. Excavations have apparently uncovered footings/foundations, but the latest thinking is that these were for a large pool in which the Taj would have been reflected in the moonlight.
