The garden complex situated on the opposite bank of the Taj Mahal is known as Mehtab Bagh or the Moonlight Garden. It was designed as an integral part of the complex in the riverfront terrace pattern seen elsewhere in Agra. Originally, the garden was planted with fragrant flowers and used in the cool of the night as a place from which to view the Taj Mahal reflected in the octagonal pool and in the river.
