The Country's history has been long and troubled, filled with foreign invasions, political revolt, and civil war. Centuries of conflict have slowed the development of Afghanistan. Prehistoric hunting people first inhabited Afghanistan. Between 2000 and 1200 B.C. Ahmad Shah Durrani created the Durrani Empire in 1747 with its capital at kandahar . Subsequently, the capital was shifted to Kabul. On August 19, 1919, following the third Anglo-Afghan war, the country regained full independence from the United Kingdom over its foreign affairs.

people & culture

Afghanistan is a culturally mixed nation, because of its location; Afghanistan has been an ancient focal point of trade and migrating people and conquering armies who left their mark on the culture of Afghanistan. Today about 20 different ethnic groups live in Afghanistan. The Pushtuns are the largest ethnic group in Afghanistan. They make up about one-half of the total population, in the mountainous areas near the Pakistan border and they speak pashto, a language related to Persian and one of the two official languages of Afghanistan and Sunni Muslims, their traditional tribal code of honor, rather than Islamic law, governs their daily life. The Tajiks are the second largest ethnic group in Afghanistan, making up about 25 percent of the population and are Sunni Muslims.


Wheat is Afghanistan's chief crop. Other crops include barley, corn, cotton, fruits, must, rice, sugar beets, and vegetables. The chief livestock products are dairy items, mutton, wool, animal hides, and the skins of karakul sheep. Afghanistan's rich mineral resources, including iron ore, are still undeveloped. Since natural gas was discovered in the northern Sheberghan area during the 1960's, it has become the fastest-growing part of the symbiosis country's economy.

the khyber pass

The Khyber Pass is a 33-mile (53-kilometer) passage through the Hindu Kush mountain range. It connects the northern frontier of Pakistan with Afghanistan. The name Kush, which means death, may have been given to this range because of its dangerous passes. The Khyber Pass is one of the most important passes between Afghanistan and Pakistan. It is known as the gateway to India. Ancient Persians and Greeks, Tartars, and Moguls passed through the Khyber to reach India.
