Jalalabad

Jalalabad is a city in eastern Afghanistan. Located at the junction of the Kabul and Kunar rivers near the Laghman valley, Jalalabad is the capital of Nangarhar province. It is linked by approximately 90 miles (140 km) of highway with Kabul to the west and about the same distance to Peshawar in Pakistan to the east. Its population is a mixture of Pashtun and the Dari-speaking Tajiks/Farsiwans. Sunni Islam forms the religion of a solid majority of the population. The Turi Pashtuns and Dari-speaking Kizilbash/Qizilbash inhabitants practice the Shia form of Islam. These, however, suffered immensely under the Wahabbi Taliban government, and were dispersed.

Jalalabad/Jalalkot is the largest city of east Afghanistan as well as its social and business center. Major industries include papermaking as well agricultural products including oranges, rice, and sugarcane. The city was a major center of Greco-Buddhist culture in the past until it was conquered by Muslim Turks by the 10th century. The modern city gained prominence during the reign of the Mughal emperor Babur. Invaded on numerous occasions, the city fell to the British in 1842 during the First Anglo-Afghan War. Today the city is being rebuilt under NATO and UN direction after decades of war and has been receiving an influx of returning refugees largely from Pakistan.
