KABUL COMEBACK - 2007-11-03

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]

Bagh-e-Babur

The site of Baghe Babur is thought to be that of the "paradise garden" that Babur, founder of the
Mughal empire, gave instructions for in 1528 AD (935 AH). It is one of several gardens that Babur
had laid out for recreation and pleasure during his life, while choosing this site as his last restingplace. Initially buried in Agra, Babur's body was laid to rest in the 1540s in the garden that has
since borne his name.
