Kolola Pushta Fort

The fort of Kolola Pushta overlooks the Sherpur and Shahr-e Nau districts of Kabul, sitting on a round hill that gives the fort its name. An important garrison and armoury for the Afghan army, its capture in December in 1928 by the Tajik rebel Bach Saqao led to the fall of Kabul and overthrow of Amanullah. The fort is still garrisoned.
