Afghanistan from the Air

This aerial picture taken 06 April 2005 shows the Darul-Aman palace, the former house of Afghan King Amanullah (1920-1929), taken from an ISAF helicopter. Afghanistan unveiled 11 April 2005 plans to turn the bombed-out ruins of the former royal palace into the headquarters of the country's first post-Taliban parliament, but appealed to private donors to fund the restoration. Afghan officials backed the plan drawn up by a German architect to restore the Darul-Aman palace built by Afghan King Amanullah Khan in 1924 to its former glory but said private donors would have to foot the 60-70 million dollar bill.
