| Herat | Karrokh

The congregational mosque of Karrokh is unusual for having retained a series of large timber posts supporting the east-facing gallery. The images were taken prior to the restoration reportedly undertaken by the department of Historic Monuments in 2013. A series of fine gravestones stand in the adjoining cemetery.
