Farah Citadel was a little bit disappointment for my part. It is certainly one of the oldest castles of Asia. However they haven’t done anyhing to restore/rebuild the castle. I believe Afghan governors should care about historical buildings. There are already a few of them in Afghanistan…
I don’t know what is disappointing for you but the citadel still stands thereafter 20 centuries.
Going to Visit Afganistan next week as I don’t know much about it so I was looking for a blog to know the best things to there thanks for this information. As Know I know What to do there.
I am glad if this could help you. I recommend you to see the citadels in Herat and Farah if you will visit Afghanistan.
Hello and bye.
