Pul-e Kheshti Mosque, Kabul

3.4
#5 of 6 in Historic Sites in Kabul
Pul-e Khishti Mosque is the largest mosque in Kabul, Afghanistan. Located in the center of old Kabul, the Pul-e Khishti Mosque can be identified by its large blue dome. The mosque originally was erected in the late 18th Century, but largely rebuilt under Zahir Shah in the late 1960s. It was damaged during fighting in the 1990s, but is one of the few buildings in the area which has had restoration work done on it.

Many Kabulis assert that the imam of this mosque for many years in the early part of the 20th century was an Englishman who had converted to Islam, and that the imam returned to England after relinquishing his position at the mosque.

  • The heart of kabul and a historic place.
  • One of the big and historical mosque of the kabul. Extension works going on there but temporary area has been designated for public prayers so there is no issue due to the construction.
