ABDUR RAHMAN MAUSOLEUM,
phase: 1880-1901, second phase 1901-1919.
" The mausoleum of one of Afghanistan's most
dynamic rulers stands in the center of Kabul in Zarnegar (Adorned
with Gold) Park. A long inscription beside the main entrance
relates the story of how this building was first built by
Amir Abdur Rahman (1880-1901) as a small private palace where
he could relax away from court formalities. The cupola and
minarets were added by his son, Amir Habibullah (1901-1919)
also vuilt the mosque beside the mausoleum."
