This ancient citadel of Bala Hissar towering over Kabul was an active military site until a recent presidential decree recognized its unique heritage value. This project will create an archaeological park at the citadel by conducting investigations and documentation, stabilizing the archaeological remains, and setting up educational facilities and a heritage trail so that this site and its remarkable history can be opened to the people of Kabul.
