Bagram bazaar

Bagram is the capital of Parwan Province, East Afghanistan in Afghanistan.


Bagram is in a strategic location controlling access to the passes north of Kabul. Alexander the Great built a city called Alexandria in the Caucasus near here in the 4th century BCE, the Soviets had a major military base in the area when they invaded in the 20th century CE, and so did the Americans when they and their allies invaded in the 21st.

There's not much reason for a traveler to visit Bagram, and it's probably not the safest place to be either. If you are within the area, do not attempt to stop near the facilities and observe operations: this interest may be seen differently by others because the situation in Afghanistan is so volatile.
