Bagh-e Babur, Kabul Province

4.7
#5 of 11 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.

  • Very nice and big garden. It is observable historically and architectally. Families can spend weekend days
  • A magnificent testament to the splendor and sophistication of art in the times of Babur ( Zahīr ud-Dīn Muhammad) the founder and first Emperor of the Mughal dynasty - with amazing artwork displayed in the most beautiful of settings, in the environs where many of the scenes found in the painting are depicted. I had the good fortune to have an extensive tour of the galleries with prominent Princeton Professor and Afghanistan Scholar, Prof. Michael Barry, whose knowledge of art, culture, language, religion, customs and much more of Afghanistan and the MENA region and Asia knows no bounds. This is a heritage of which the Afghan people should be justly proud, and the work must be preserved in this beautiful location for all to enjoy. The Gardens are splendid, remember to visit Babur's tomb, Shah Jahani mosque, and admire the vegetation - some of which is only found here. Notice the backdrop: the mountains which you will see in the artwork. When your stomach rumbles, a nice restaurant serves up delicious food, while you can digest all the wonderful impressions from your tour. Thank you - From a grateful visitor from Denmark.
  • Bagh-e Babur is the most beautiful place in Kabul for me. It is exactly like what Babur Shah said : "If there is a paradise on this earth, it is this, it is this, it is this."
  • 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.
