Kabul City Center is Afghanistan's first modern-style indoor shopping mall that opened in 2005. It is approximately nine stories tall and is located in downtown Kabul. The mall is equipped with escalators and see-through elevators.

For security, the mall's glass windows are explosive resistant. Visitors are screened by metal detectors before being allowed to enter. The screening stopped a suicide bomber from entering the mall on 14 February 2011.[1]

The top six floors of the mall is part of the Safi Landmark Hotel, which is owned by a Dubai based hotel and resort company.
