Around the City

Darulaman Palace, built by Afghanistan's King Amanullah in the early 20th century, sits on the edge of western Kabul.

A small structure we stumbled upon while hiking down from the Kabul Wall into the old city neighborhood of Asheqan wa Arefan.

The beautiful carved wooden windows are part of the renovation in Asheqan wa Arefan completed by the Aga Khan Trust for Culture. They have repaired at least 11 homes in the area, plus a shrine, mosque, bathhouse and several little allies, like this one below.
