Reachback – Chapter 5 – The Mound

Next to the Taj Plex, there is a man made mound, that probably dates back to the days of Buddhism in Jalalabad, that is a watch tower of sorts, overlooking the Kabul River and the surrounding farmlands. This area formerly called Adina Pur (Pushto:آدينه پور) as documented by the 7th century Hsüan-tsang.
