Uzbekha Mosque Restoration
Kabul, Afghanistan
Aga Khan Historic Cities Programme
The repair of the war-damaged Uzbekha mosque was the first initiative undertaken by AKTC in the old city in 2002. Dating from the 19th century, this community mosque follows the conventional form, with an upper mosque (originally open to the east, now glazed) for use in summer and a ground floor prayer area for the winter. In addition to the conservation of the mosque itself, rooms for community use around the courtyard were reconstructed, and the water supply improved.
