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.

I myself didn't know about the cemetery, but come to know about through a tourist. Its nice and peaceful place in crowded city. I strongly suggest you visit this place if you happen to visit Kabul.
