Afghanistan has a rich cultural heritage covering more than 5,000 years.  Afghanistan lies across ancient trade and invasion routes from Central Asia into India. This position has been the greatest influence on its history because the invaders often settled there.  It is also called the land of Khyber Pass.

In about 2000 to 1500 B.C the Aryans were in Afghanistan and it is in this period that the Rig Veda or the basis of Indian Philosophy was establihed in the Himalyan Ranges. The City of Kabul, is thought to have been established during this time.    After this time the Zorastrian religion was introduced by Zoroaster.  In 300 B.C Alexander the Great conquered Afghanistan, but failed to really subdue its people.  Then in 50 A.D.King Kanishka of India established his rule and introduced Buddhisim in the land.  In 400 A.D. the White Huns invaded Afghanistan and destroyed the Buddhist culture and left  most of the country in ruins. In 600 A.D. the Arabs introduced Islam into Afghanistan.  In 1200 A.D, Afghanistan was invaded by Genghis Khan of Mongolia.  He destroyed its great irrigation systems, which turned fertile soil into deserts. In 1736 Nadir Shah (head of Persia) occupied Afghanistan. In mid 1700 Nadir Shah is assassinated, and the Afghans rose once again and established modern Afghanistan.  In the 1800’s and after there were continuous struggles between Britain and Afghanistan. In 1934 the United States of America formally recognized Afghanistan.
