Darulaman Palace – Presently the palace overlooks the Canadian International Security Assistance Forces (ISAF) main base. In February of 2003 I walked all through the destroyed palace and was looking forward to showing it to my fellow traveler, only to discover as we climbed the hill, that the windows of the bottom floor had been closed with cinder blocks and sand bagged guard posts were on all sides. The whole building was surrounded by razor wire. We discovered that the palace had been used by a hostile force to fire rockets into the ISAF compound.
