Information:

On the area below the grave of Emperor Babur, a small marble mosque was built by Baburs great great grandson Shah Jahan in 1638 (at the same time he was undertaking the construction of the Taj Mahal in India). The site attracts tourists and pilgrims in the beautiful garden setting of Baghe Babur (Baburs garden).
