Darul Aman Palace: A Journey Through Its History and Restoration

Darul Aman Palace, with nearly a century of historical significance, is located eight kilometers from Kabul city.

This palace, featuring a three-story building, contains 150 small and large rooms designed in the European architectural style.

This historical monument of the country was constructed during the reign of King Amanullah Khan, to the southwest of Chahar Asyab in Kabul, a place previously known as Afshar Tepe.

The palace, strategically located at an elevation of 30 meters and covering an area of 1,400 square meters, was built by order of Amir Amanullah Khan. The construction work was started by 22 German architects under the supervision of German engineer Walter Harten and was completed in 1927 (1306 solar year ).

Sayed Shah Mahmood, a cultural expert, said: "The building was designed by Germans and Turks, but it was completed with the artistry of Afghan architects and carpenters."

In the construction of this palace, materials such as mountain stone, marble, cement, plaster, and baked bricks were used, and its roof is adorned with wood and carpets.

Ketab Khan Fayzi, head of the Kushani International Research Center, said: "This palace has three stories and approximately 150 rooms, covering an area of 1,400 square meters."

Despite enduring difficult periods, the palace, with its green surroundings, has now become one of the most pristine historical and tourist attractions in the capital.

Visitors to the palace have various stories about this historical place.

Navid Amanyar, a visitor, said: "We came today to visit Darul Aman Palace. The palace is among the ancient monuments."

Another visitor, Abdul Qahar, said: "Visitors need a guide here to help them explore the place."

Khubaib Ghofran, spokesman for the Ministry of Information and Culture, emphasizes the preservation of historical palaces in the country and says they are working to provide more facilities for visitors.

Ghofran said: "The Ministry of Information and Culture is committed to maintaining and restoring all historical monuments, palaces, and sites and always strives to protect these monuments and palaces."

Darul Aman Palace suffered significant damage during the civil war and eventually turned into ruins, remaining unused for the past two decades.

This palace was last renovated in 2019 at a cost of sixteen million US dollars.
