In the busy center of Kabul city, in a space full of crowds and vehicles, next to many new and old buildings, a building can be seen that is different. A blue dome with two minarets near the dry sea of Kabul that attracts the eye and it is the first mosque in Kabul city. "Shah Do Shamshireh Mosque" is a mosque and a place of pilgrimage that is usually filled with needy people on Wednesdays. "Shah Dushamshireh" mosque is a historical place that adds to the glory of Kabul and has not been damaged during the years of war and recent internal conflicts in Afghanistan. This mosque is located in the heart of the city of Kabul, and it was originally a shrine that was converted into a mosque, and now the people of Kabul use it as a place for prayer and worship.
The Mosque of that King who had two swords with him. But I don't know why it is called with as such name.....? Will try my best to ask from a local historian. It was built in the time of the king Aman Ullah Khan with an Italian decorative design which has been copied from a Turkish Ortokey Mosque. It was fully renovated in 2021. Here you can also enjoy the Dove Rock Pigeons with their cooing, grunting and the sweet sounds of their wings and feet before takeoff and during flight towards Shah Du Shamshera Mosque.
