Babur Tomb, Kabul

4.5
#1 of 21 in Things to do in Afghanistan
Landmark Tourist Spot
Explore a historic park containing Babur Tomb, the final resting place of the first Mughal emperor and a tentative World Heritage Site on the terraced slope of Kuh-e Sher Darwaza. Perched on the top of a tree-lined incline in one of the earliest surviving Mughal gardens, now revamped by an international foundation, the marble tomb inside the mausoleum is amazingly simple. Spanning 11.5 ha (28.5 ac), this peaceful and tranquil garden pavilion with 15 terraces offers views across the Kabul River toward snow-clad mountains, best viewed from the top terrace. The area makes a nice spot for families to visit on Fridays. To visit Babur Tomb on your holiday in Kabul, and find out what else Kabul has to offer, use our Kabul tourist route planner.

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.
