"Turquoise Mountain is a non-profit, non-governmental organisation that was established in 2006 at the request of HRH The Prince of Wales and HE Hamid Karzai, The President of Afghanistan. The name evokes the greatest indigenous Afghan capital of the middle ages, Firuzkuh, a city destroyed by Ghengis Khan in 1216 and lost to history. Its only surviving monument is the magnificent Minaret of Jam in Ghur Province. Turquoise Mountain's aim is to revive Afghanistan's traditional crafts, and to regenerate Murad Khane, a historic area of Kabul's old city known for its rich cultural heritage. " [1]
