Central Square: Victory Arch (Taq-e-Zafar).

1969
Was the arch built in 1922 or perhaps in 1926, as some say, or in 1928 after the King and Queen returned from their European tour when they visited Paris? Regardless of the exact date, the Victory Arch has continued to be a cherished part of the cultural heritage. It is consistently featured on Afghan bank notes along with other historic monuments around the country.
