Work on renovation of Chihil Sutun – Forty Columns – Palace, a cultural heritage from the 19th century, has been completed. The palace was built by Abdur Rahman Khan who was Emir of Afghanistan from 1880 to 1901.
The palace, that includes a garden and a pavilion, is lying over 60 acres of land in Kabul’s Chihil Sutun area in PD7. It is expected to attract thousands of visitors from Kabul and other provinces of the country.
The project has been financed by the German government and has been implemented by Aga Khan Development Network which works on renovation of historical and cultural places in the country. The project has taken three and half a years.
The historical site is registered as a cultural heritage at the Afghan Ministry of Information and Culture.
