Easy to miss in the maze of kabul. But a truly reflective experience. The many foreigners who have sacrificed their lives for this nation is quite sobering. Reading the epitaphs puts life into perspective in this war torn nation.

Interesting place to visit, full of history and very well maintained. Worth taking the time to wander through the graves and read the plaques.
