You may also come across people saying that it is not a safe place to stay but those who are out on a hunt to discover the ancient aspects of the city would truly make their way to Kabul to get their hands on varied highlights which reflect pure olden times from every corner. It may come as a surprise to you that the historical background of Kabul dates back to more than 3000 years. In those times, the city was shattered into pieces and was reconstructed numerous times as it was under the influence of various rulers.
