Afghan Culture

As honour in Afghan culture defines the reputation of an individual and close relatives, the role of honour and tribalism has fuelled much of the disharmony in Afghanistan's recent past.

As one group carries out violent acts against another, the victims are forced to respond; continuing the vicious circle of violence.

With Rory Stewart at its helm, Turquoise Mountain is investing in the regeneration of the historic, commercial centre of Kabul; providing basic services, saving historic buildings and constructing a new bazaar and galleries for traditional craft businesses.

It has already established Afghanistan’s first Centre for Traditional Afghan Arts and Architecture; gathering some of the greatest Masters in Afghanistan and training students to produce masterpieces in wood, calligraphy and ceramics.

Afghan Culture Unveiled:
Humaira Ghilzai has an encyclopaedic knowledge of Afghanistan, its history and culture. She weaves into her presentations her personal story as an Afghan and her current work with her non-profit organization, Afghan Friends Network, and on her monthly blogs on Afghan life and culture.

Afghanistan's history, its internal political development, its foreign relations, and its very existence as an independent state have been largely determined by its location at the crossroads of Central, West, and South Asia.

Afghan Photo Gallery:
From the grinning boy in Afghan traditional clothes, to the horrors of war, nowhere will you find a truer picture of Afghanistan.

Afghan Recipes:

Hidden Land of the Hindu Kush:
Nuristan lies in the Hindu Kush mountains of north-eastern Afghanistan, spanning the basins of the Alingar, Pech, Landai Sin, and Kunar rivers. It is the homeland of a unique group of Indo-European-speaking tribal peoples, now called Nuristanis.

Traditional Afghan musical instruments are mostly used in folklore music but are also played by Afghans in modern Afghan music.

Afghan History

The monarchy was overthrown in 1973.

Afghan History:
Chronology of Afghan history from 50,000 BC to the present day.

Habibullah Khan:
Habibullah came to the throne of Afghanistan in 1901, and set about modernising the country.

Afghan Media

Good Afghan News:
There is plenty of bad news being reported out of Afghanistan – the seemingly never ending war, drug trade, corruption, and human rights abuses. There are good things happening in Afghanistan, and this news is rarely being reported.
