'The Tomb of the Emperor Baber' 1840 (c).

Tinted lithograph from bound volume of 26 tinted lithographs, 'Sketches in Afghanistan', 1838-1842, by Louis and Charles Haghe after James Atkinson, published by Henry Graves and Company and J W Allen and Company, 1 July 1842.

Zahiruddin Muhammad Babur (1483-1530) was the first Mughal emperor. Although he wished to be interred in his favourite city of Kabul, he was first buried in a mausoleum in Agra. Around ten years later his body was transferred to a beautiful garden in Kabul by Sher Shah Suri. Further additions to the tomb were made by the Emperors Jehangir and Shahjahan, who built a mosque there in 1650. The Persian inscription on Babur's tomb reads: 'If there is a paradise on earth, it is this, it is this, it is this'.
