Abdur Rahman Khan Mausoleum, Kabul

Abdur Rahman Khan Mausoleum, Kabul (must see)

Abdur Rahman Khan was Emir of Afghanistan between 1880 and 1901. He was a strong ruler and gained the name of the ‘Iron Amir’. His tomb sits in the Mausoleum in Zarnegar Park (translated as the park adorned with gold). This building used to be a palace that later was converted to a mausoleum for the Amir. There is a beautiful red dome atop of the mausoleum that sits on a whitewashed drum. Across from the park you’ll see the Abdul Rahman Mosque. It is not to be confused, the benefactor of the mosque has no relation to the Iron Amir.
