Qargha Jamatkhana, Kabul, Afghanistan

Situated in the western part of Kabul, Qargha is a scenicarea known for its lake - a big draw for Kabul residents,
who visit during the week and especially on weekends for a
bit of fresh air and sightseeing. A new jamat khana opened
there in April of this year.

The Jamat in Qargha originates from various parts of
Afghanistan and initially settled there in the 1980s during
the period of Soviet occupation. At that time, Jamati
settlements consisted mainly of mud houses with poor access
to sanitation, electricity and other infrastructure.
