KABUL COMEBACK - 2007-11-03

Saturday, 2007, November 3

2007, November 3: The Baghe Babur (Babur's Garden) became a symbol of Kabul's devastation. The Aga Khan, spiritual head of the world's Ismaili Muslims and a friend of the government of President Hamid Karzai, led the effort to fix it up. The German government pitched in. The hope was that the garden, restored to its former splendour, would become a symbol of the city's renaissance. [Globe and Mail]
