Description


Recalling a time when Afghanistan was considered one of the most beautiful and welcoming countries in Central Asia, this is a 1965 Aminullah Dagarman and Afghan Tourist Organization map of Afghanistan. This map of Afghanistan depicts the entire country, then known as the Known as the 'Garden of Asia'. Thick red lines trace the principal roads. These connect major cities, including Kabul, Ghazni, Kandahar, and Herat. Distances between cities (in kilometers) appear as well. Towns and villages of all sizes are labeled throughout, along with mountain passes, rivers, and lakes. Afghanistan's twenty-nine provinces are labeled numerically and correspond with a table situated along the right border. Subtle artistic designs evoke Afghanistan's incredible terrain, and two green areas hint at the importance of the Helmand and Amoo Darya rivers for Afghanistan's agricultural industry.
