The Taj Mahal May Expand Moonlight Viewingsby Easy Tours of India Luxury Tours and Travel in India
Travelers looking to catch a moonlight glimpse of Agra’s most famed attraction, Taj Mahal, may soon find it to be a much easier endeavor.
Catching the Taj Mahal in the light of the moon has been a much vaunted itinerary item for decades, but a lack of facilities has severely limited the Agra Tourism Department’s ability to hold nighttime viewings of the ancient Mughal monument. That could all quickly change if the city’s talks with the Archeological Survey of India, the federal body in charge of many of India’s treasured historic places, go according to plan.
Travelers in Agra may soon have more opportunities to see the Taj Mahal at night under the moon.
Mehtab Bagh, a Mughal garden from the 17th century, faces the Taj Mahal from across the Yamuna River. While current night viewings of Taj Mahal are limited to four or five days a month at the front gates of the monument, the ASI and city of Agra hope to create new facilities at Mehtab Bagh to accommodate 500 people nearly every night of the year.
