From the essay's introduction:


One of the most famous Mughal gardens is the Bagh-i Babur in Kabul, where the first Mughal Emperor, Babur (r. in India 1526–30), was buried (Fig. 1). A time-honoured tradition holds it to have been founded by him. In this paper it will be argued that although the garden was founded as a burial site for his mother by Babur, the large terraced garden was created under his grandson, the Emperor Akbar (r. 1556–1605), who wished to give the tomb of the founder of the dynasty at Kabul a representative setting.
