Castles and Palaces in Afghanistan


There aren’t any medieval castles in Afghanistan, and actually very few historical buildings can be found here.  Still, the Bala Hissar near Kabul is one of the oldest fortifications in the area, dating back to the 5th century.

Also, some ruined palaces built at the start of the 20th century can be found here, like the Darul Aman Palace.

Because of the current political situation, visiting these ruins is not advisable for the average tourist. There is work done to preserve these remains, but their future is uncertain.
