The huge compound is composed from a lot of buildings and is something extraordinary in Afghanistan. There is nice corner for holy white doves and is legend that ordinary pigeon turns white in the compound.
This well restored and most relaxed holy place is similar to famous architecture of Samarkand complex dated back to 15th century. Inside the shrine compound you can see whole families with children. We can organize a trip in this beutiful city in nord Afghanistan for our guest.

“Are you seeking too the wisdom of this world?
I looked at the cross of the Christians, but it was not there. I went into the temple of the Hindus and to the old pagodas, I went to the Kaaba in Mecca and the synagogues, but nowhere I found a trace of wisdom. I searched on the mountains and in valleys, but neither in the height nor the lowlands I found it. I asked the scholars and philosophers, but it was beyond their comprehension.
As I looked into my heart: And there I saw it.”
