Qataghan-Badakhshan Province was a province located in Afghanistan. The province was originally created in 1890 when the district of Qataghan and Badakhshan was separated from the province of Afghan Turkestan. Administration of the province was assigned to the Northern Bureau in Kabul.[1] In 1963 Badakhshan included the districts of Baghlan, Pul-i-Khumri, Dushi, Dahan-i-Ghori, Kanabad, Andarab, Kunduz, Hazrat-i-Imam, and Taloqan. In 1963 Qataghan-Badakhshan Province was abolished and since then the territory was divided into four separate provinces - Badakhshan, Baghlan, Kunduz, and Takhar.[2]
