Overall Guide : Kabul is the capital of Afghanistan. It is situated in the middle of the country on the Kabul River. Its height of about 1800m (5900ft) makes Kabul one of the highest capital cities in the world. Kabul counts... more around 1 million inhabitants, the population is composed of a majority group of Tajiks and an important minority of Pashtuns. In the past Kabul has been a very important economic and cultural centre because of its closeness to the Khyber Pass located in the mountains dividing Afghanistan from Pakistan. Some of the typical manufacturing products of Kabul are: textiles, processed food, chemicals and wood products. Kabul has an University founded in 1932. It was the most important and best known centre of higher education all over the region in the years between 1970 and 1980, unfortunately it got closed because of the war in 1992. Today it ha been reopened in part, but only a few students are attending it. For having the same success as in the past it would need to be reconstructed. In 1504 Kabul got its great importance when it was made capital of the Moghul Empire by the conqueror Babur. In 1526 Delhi replaced Kabul as the imperial capital but Kabul kept its importance as Moghul centre until it was captured by the Persian ruler named Nadir Shah in 1738. In 1747 Kabul became part of an independent Afghan state and in the 1770s it replaced Quandahar as the capital of Afghanistan. In the 19th century it was of great importance for British, Persian and Russian rivalry because of the control of the Khyber Pass, it was twice occupied by British troops, in 1839-1842 and 1879-1880. After 1940 the city of Kabul grew as an industrial centre. In 1979 Kabul was also occupied by troops of Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) and they left Afghanistan only in February 1989. But the most disastrous event in its history was the civil war between 1992 and 1996, Kabul lost over 50.000 people. From 1996 to 2001 the city was controlled by the Taliban government, when they withdrew the Northern Alliance took over Kabul. The role of UN and World community are very important in bringing a stable government in Kabul.

Overall Guide : All of the various acts of worship contained in the divine laws are designed to help humans remember God. It is natural for human beings to sometimes forget even the most important things. Humans often become so engrossed in fulfilling... more their material needs that they totally forget their spiritual needs. Regular prayer is ordained to organize the day of the true believer.

Overall Guide : Good people, strangled between bad! Better disguise like the locals to stay safe between the good and bad. Always keep map or you'll get lost. Never offer Dollars for Transport, it gets expensive. Watch for the roadside digs, either driving... more or walking. Police force and Local army are really good people. Always trust them.

Overall Guide : I have been in Kabul in 2010. Kabul needs more attention towards building of streets and lanes in subarbs of Kabul. Kabul museum needs attention and storing of the lost objects. I believe we should keep old Kabul intact for... more the purpose future income through the tourists visits.
