Sheberghan is the capital of Jowzjan Province in Afghanistan. It is in the region historically known as Bactria.

Understand[edit]

The village of Tilia Tepe about 5 km north of town is an important archaeological site; royal burial mounds there yielded over 20,000 golden artifacts believed to be from the 1st century BCE.

Get in[edit]

Sherberghan is on an ancient trade route, part of the Silk Road, connecting Balkh and Herat.

Today, there is a highway, part of an Afghan ring road that connects the country's four largest cities running from Kabul north to Mazar-e-Sharif, west to Herat, south to Kandahar and back to Kabul. Sherberghan is on the Mazar-Herat part of that road.

The city also has an airport.
