Where is Kabul?
Afghanistan’s capital and largest city is Kabul. It is a municipality that is part of the Kabul Province and is administratively divided into 22 municipal districts. Its eastern half is where it is located. Kabul’s population was estimated to be 5 million people in 2023. The city has served as Afghanistan’s political, cultural, and economic hub in modern times. Rapid urbanization has made Kabul the 75th-largest city in the world and the primate city of the nation.
The modern-day city of Kabul is situated high up in a small valley in the Hindu Kush and is bordered on all sides by the river. It is one of the highest capital cities in the world, rising to a height of 1, 790 meters. The old neighborhoods of this city’s center include those of Khashti Bridge, Khabgah, Kahforoshi, Deh-Afghanan, Chandavel, Shorbazar, Saraji, Zana- Khan, and Baghe Alimardan.
Fresh and dried fruit, nuts, beverages, Afghan rugs, leather and sheepskin goods, furniture, antique replicas, and domestic clothing were among Kabul’s main offerings. The Kabul Urban Reconstruction Project, which was approved by the World Bank for$ 25 million, was completed in 2011. The United States has invested about$ 9.1 billion in Afghanistan’s urban infrastructure over the past ten years. The city’s economic productivity has been constrained by the wars since 1978, but since the Karzai administration took office in late 2001, local economic developments have included a number of indoor shopping malls. The Kabul City Center, which opened in 2005, was the first of these. In recent years, additional locations have also opened, such as Gulbahar Center, City Walk Mall, and Majid Mall.
One of the main bazaars in Kabul is Mandawi Road, which is situated between the Murad Khani and Shur Bazaar neighborhoods on the south bank of a river. This wholesale market is very well-liked by the locals. The Sarai Shahzada money exchange market is nearby. Perhaps Chicken Street is best known to visitors from abroad.
The largest industrial hub in Kabul was situated in District 9, close to the airport and on the north banks of the River Tajul. A 9-hectare industrial complex with modern facilities had been completed about 6 km from downtown Kabul in Bagrami, allowing businesses to operate there. The park had qualified staff to oversee the daily upkeep of public roads, internal streets, common areas, parking spaces, 24-hour perimeter security, and access control for both vehicles and people. There were several factories operating, including the$ 25 million Coca-Cola bottling plant and the Omaid Bahar juice factory.
