Bagh-e Babur, Kabul Province

4.7
#5 of 9 in Things to do in Kabul Province
Enjoy a peaceful walk through Bagh-e Babur--the blooming gardens that contradict the dusty appearance of the surrounding city. Established in the 16th century, the gardens contain the tomb of King Babur, the founder of this lush complex. Roses, wild cherries, and cypresses represent only a portion of what you can see here. Many festivals take place within the park, but you can also take a stroll, have a picnic, or read a book on the lawn. Go to the highest point of the gardens for a full view of the city.

  • Babur Garden is a historic place with beautiful scenery and different kinds of trees and flowers. It is one of the best places in Kabul to visit specially with the family. There are some ancient stores and if you be lucky some art event and exhibitions. Babur Garden is one of the safest public places in Kabul. The Garden sorunded by a big wall and no one can enter without checking.
  • Perfect destination for outing. Amazing historical place. Clean and Green.
  • Its is a beautiful historic place, good for taking pictures as well for enjoyment. People can easily spend their 2 to 3 hours roaming their.
  • However Kabul is nice and beautiful but it lacks a lot places like Bagh Babur. The park is beautiful and breathtaking, but the authorities neglect a lot of issues in keeping the park clean and up to date.
  • This tomb is really beautiful, it has been renovated and the place has got its beauty again. These days some social events and gathering take place here. The Aga Khan foundation for historic building preservation has restored the place, The original Kunar wood is an amazing product used as a part of its restored product.

Where to stay in Kabul

Accommodations in Kabul run on the expensive side, since security presents a particular concern. Short-term visitors may opt for a hotel, but if you're staying for longer, the city's many guesthouses might provide a more comfortable option. Luxury establishments cater to international visitors with clean, modern rooms, swanky decor, and lavish amenities including onsite restaurants, swimming pools, and fitness centers. Mid-range hotels and guesthouses provide basic rooms, some with Wi-Fi, air-conditioning, and other services. Budget guesthouses offer shared bathrooms. Most lodgings cluster in the city center, with access to attractions and plenty of parks, while just a few hotels lie farther out to the west.
