Bagh-e Babur, Kabul Province

(4.7/5 based on a few reviews on the web)
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. Work out when and for how long to visit Bagh-e Babur and other Kabul attractions using our handy Kabul travel itinerary planner.
