they are called "qalaa"... my mom used to talk about our grandad's qalaa in sarpoza kandahar, but i always wondered how afghan qalaas looked like... never thought it would look similar to the castles built in the west... or dipicted in movies...

wow just wow... amazing... so my grandad's qalaa could look like this?... hmmm interesting.
Yeah my family lives in a Qalaa back home, it's haunted too, pretty creepy. There was a battle around the castle during the British and Afghan war. It was also a military base, my ancestors owned it. We call the castle Qalagai, it's in Ningarhar. There is a section that nobody goes to because you get rocks thrown at you from thin air (it's haunted). It's really scary, but beautiful.

Very beautiful and interesting city and region. Good to see that people are building and prosper more because Afghanistan has been hit hard with problems.

Especially the masjid al-jumʿa in Herat is beautiful.
