Shopping district in Khair Khana

Khair Khāna (Persian: خير خانه) is a neighborhood in north west Kabul, Afghanistan. It is predominantly residential, with a boom of high rise constructions and modern apartments, as the area has seen major re-developments.

History[edit]

Construction in Khair Khāna began during the late 1960s and early 1970s, as a plan to expand the city of Kabul. Many of its residents are from the north of the country and are ethnic Tajiks.[citation needed].

Khair Khana mostly survived the ordeal of the Afghan Civil War (1992-1996) which destroyed most of Kabul, with the neighborhood remaining largely intact.
