Darulaman Palace – The Palace was built in 1923 by King Amanullah (r. 1891-1929) and designed by a French architect. Before its destruction during the 1992 factional fighting it was surrounded by gracious gardens where Afghans would come for picnics. Remnants of the garden can be seen in the purple Arghawan (Judas Tree).
