The Mara temple in Kushteki in the valley’s center, was by far the largest religious building in Kafiristan (today's Nuristan). It attracted pilgrims from all over the region wanting to perform animal sacrifices in the god’s name. In addition, smaller temples, shrines, and clan-temples (amol) existed everywhere. Free-standing effigies of them served as cult figures set up and dressed up for the cultic occasion. They were shown seated on goats or stools, but the supreme deity, Mara, was represented on horseback. Most of the posts inside the amol also showed figures of deities.

The expressive wooden figures were meaningful in a social context. They symbolized social status of prominent individuals or represented deities. A mounted horseman seated on a twin-headed animal represented the highest status achievable for a tribe member and was earned either by throwing lavish feasts to at least one village or by becoming a successful assassin. The ancestral figures (gandau) were raised after death and placed in a group on the outer perimeter of the burial ground, where coffins were left unburied

The skill of woodcarving lay exclusively in the hands of the bari, the lowest ranking artisan caste of the Kafirs. Smaller effigies (kundik) would be raised in the fields where a symbolic figure of a standing, seated or mounted ancestor could watch over and protect the crops of his descendants from the high position, perched in a simple construction of stone and timber. Although Kafir culture was strongly dominated by men, women also could gain high social rank and be depicted seated or standing after death.

Until the winter of 1895/96 the population of Nuristan still preserved its old culture with roots in the very distant, pre-Christian, past. The people had succeeded in holding on to their ancient beliefs and “primitive” traditions while surrounded by a hostile Islamic world until the end of the 19th century.

The presence of pre-Islamic cultures, with a population reputed to be “savage idolaters,” amid the Islamic world was brought to a dramatic end when the Afghan Amir ?Abd-al-Ra?man sent his army into the region in 1895 with the task of destroying the old religion and substituting Islam for it.

The temples, shrines, and cult places with their wooden effigies and multitudes of ancestor figures went up in flames, and only a few effigies were saved as trophies. (More than thirty such wooden figures were brought to Kabul in 1896 or shortly thereafter, fourteen of which went to the Kabul Museum and four to the Musée Guimet and the Musée de l’Homme in Paris). After the destruction that accompanied Islamization, decades of massive sales to antique dealers, and the deliberate discarding of items (mainly house posts), only a few of these examples of the impressive Kafir material culture have survived in place.

The collection was restored after being smashed by the Taliban.

The Kajaki Dam What a Hydropower Project in Afghanistan Pictures Gallery


The Kajaki Dam, Kajaki village, Afghanistan. The dam is one of two major hydroelectric power dams in Helmand province, located 100 miles northwest of Kandahar city, which irrigates 650,000 acres of arid farmland and produces 33 megawatts of electricity



Darunta Hydroelectric Power (Darunta Dam) information and pictures

  1. USAID is rehabilitating, upgrading, and modernizing the Darunta Hydroelectric Plant to ensure reliable, long-term power for the people of eastern Afghanistan. The Darunta Irrigation and Hydroelectric Power Project, located 80 km east of Kabul on the Kabul River, was commissioned in 1964. The existing hydroelectric power plant houses three turbine units. Each unit has a capacity of 3.8 megawatts (MW), but all units combined now produce only eight MW of power. 

Darunta Dam was constructed by Soviet Union (USSR) companies in the early 1960’s and its power station contains three vertical Kaplan turbines (6 blade propeller) with a rated output of 3.85 MW each. Originally, the dam supplied 40 to 45 megawatts of electrical power but silting and damage to the system during the Afghan civil war was has reduced its actual output to 11.5 megawatts. The plant is currently in very poor condition and requires major rehabilitation including possible replacement of all three turbines. In the past 30 years, the Soviet-era generating equipment has not received any major repair. The dilapidated units are at risk of total failure. The power plant is not only the main source of power for the city of Jalalabad and the surrounding villages, but is also essential for irrigation water pumping in the agriculture-dependent Jalalabad region. The Darunta Hydroelectric project is one part of a multi-donor program to work with the Government of Afghanistan to provide diverse and reliable power across northern and eastern Afghanistan. ANHAM was contracted by USAID to perform the rehabilitation of the Darunta Hydroelectric Power Plant. Rehabilitation was expected to be completed date is 31 Jan 2012.

Unit one will be rehabilitated and in service by late July 2011
A new workshop will be constructed at the facility by early fall, 2011
Units two and three will be rehabilitated by mid 2012
