Kabul, Afghanistan

Bagh-e Babur, Kabul

Babur’s Garden, the first Moghul ‘Paradise Garden’, is said to have been a model for many other gardens. Zahiruddin Babur was a Muslim Emperor from Central Asia who founded the Mughal dynasty of South Asia. He died at the age of 48, and was succeeded by his eldest son, Humayun. Though he wished to be buried in his favourite garden in Kabul, a city he had always loved, he was first buried in a Mausoleum in the capital city of Agra. Roughly nine years later his wishes were fulfilled by Sher Shah Suri and Babur was buried in a beautiful garden Bagh-e Babur in Kabul, now in Afghanistan. The inscription on his tomb reads: “If there is a paradise on earth, it is this, it is this, it is this !".
