Takht e Babri ....Throne of great Mughual Emperor Babar

Pakistan has many magnificient monuments from the Mughual Emperors. While travelling from the India on different military compaigns they used to stay at different places here. One such 'STONE MADE THRONE' has been made by Mughual Emperor Babar. It is situated in the east of Islamabd.

In the east of Islamabad lies some of the beautiful tourist spots. Access to these spots have now become very easy with the construction of Islamabad Lahore Motorway. Located in the Chakwal Panjab District
these tourist destination included Kallar Kahar lake, Khewra Salt Range and Takht e Babri.

It is said that the great Mughual Emperor Babar in India while passing by this place stayed here and liked the beauty of this place in 1519 AD. He also ordered a construction of a garden here that still exist here which is named as Bagh e Safa or The Mughual Garden. I have already mention about that Garden in my earlier posts.

Here is a stone made throne. Its is made by engraving a structure of a throne on the big rock which included a few stairs and a flat platform on which Emperor Babar used to stand and give instruction to his army men.
It is also said that Emperor Babar used to spend a lot of time at this spot doing meditation.

Emperor Babar was much inspired by the natural beauty of this place that he has described this place as 'A charming place with a natural beauty'.
