Photograph of the week: The Taj Mahal from the Garden of the Moon

The Moon Garden of Agra, located right across the river from the Taj Mahal, is one of the best places to see the famous structure. The garden features remains of what many people believe was the start of a replica Taj Mahal to be built in black. While that has never been confirmed, there are ruins in this garden of a structure and it is an amazing place to walk the lush trees and plant life while gazing upon India‘s jewel, the Taj Mahal. Taj Mahal, India Thank you to Josh McNair of Our Unique World for permission to share the photograph.

  1. I hadn’t heard before that the garden across the river is called the Garden of the Moon. Any idea why? I’m visiting Agra in November and can’t wait to see this beautiful building!

  2. The most perfect monument I have ever seen. My job gave me the privilege to see it at all times and the best time for me has been during sunrise and sunset. And sipping a cup of coffee from the balcony of the hotel Amarvilas during full moon. Truly mesmerising and magical!
