Kardan University Students’ Visit to the Presidential Palace and Arg Archive

Kardan University students visited the Presidential Palace and Arg Archive on a study tour organized on Wednesday, December 4, 2019.

Afghanistan has a long history filled with pride, achievements and sacrifices – having experienced different regimes, political movements as well as socio-cultural and historical changes. Decades of war and political unrest negatively affected the country, including historical monuments and cultural assets, which symbolize the identity and civilization of the nation.

Due to the relentless efforts of government authorities and NGOs, historical monuments and cultural sites are being restored and included in Afghanistan's historical and cultural heritage.

The archive at the Presidential palace hosts students, university professors, and researchers to get together and not only study the artifacts but also exchange views on relevant sociocultural matters. It also provides researchers a chance to come up with creative solutions to the current issues.

Meanwhile, Arg Archives is an institution that introduces every viewer to the history and culture of the country and creates a sense of caring, enthusiasm, and empathy among people, and strives to be a reliable source of scientific research. Therefore, students from different faculties of Kardan University visited the Presidential Palace and Arg Archive.

The students had the chance to meet with the President, Mr. Mohammad Ashraf Ghani, who encouraged them to work hard in their studies and stay committed to the country’s prosperity in whatever they intend to do in the future.

“I am grateful for the guidance provided by the administrative staff of the Arg Archives and gained insights into the works and notes left from the former rulers. The meeting with President Ghani was fruitful and inspiring in many ways.” Arsalan Sediqi, a student from the Law Department, said.
