0.1.2 PALAIS DE SHAT DSC_8285.jpeg
The Shah's Palace, Darul Aman, Kabul
For $5, the soldier shows us the remains of the greatness of the palace: a half decorated hall, bombed rooms and a pool that has still retains its turquoise color. During the guided visit, you must be careful as the floors can disappear and stairs end abruptly half way to the next level.
Despite an omnipresent void felt from the outset, the Palace seems to be coming back to its life Now its an Afghan army base and in winter a shelter for Kochi, Afghan nomads and their colorful caravans.
