Darah Sof District (Darah-ye Şūf-e Pā’īn)

Darah Sof is a district of Samangan Province in Afghanistan. It is located about 130 km from the city of Samangan and 200 km from the city of Mazar-i-Sharif, in Balkh Province.

A large part of Darah Sof is surrounded by hills, where a type of wheat called Lalm (???) is grown. A river in Darah Sof called Qalah Sarkori makes the area very lush and fertile. Many of the residents have installed small turbines to extract power from this river. The district of Darah Sof was recently divided into two districts; Darah Sof Balla (the upper valley) and Darah Sof Payan (the lower valley).

There are approximately 107,000 residents in Darah Sof, with the majority of Hazara ethnicity. The district has one high school, eleven elementary schools, and two religious schools.

On 15 March 1979, an uprising against the Democratic People's Party of Afghanistan occurred. A work project is currently planned to improve the road between Darah Sof and Mazar Sharif city. This project is funded by the Correa government, with working capital of $60 million.

The name Darah Sof may be rendered in many, many, different ways in western languages. Some examples are: Dar-I-Suf, Dare Suf, Darya Ye Suf; the preceding with Sof instead of Suf.

Country - Afghanistan

Flag of Afghanistan
Afghanistan (Pashto/Dari: افغانستان, Pashto: Afġānistān, Dari: Afġānestān ), officially the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, is a landlocked country located in South-Central Asia. Afghanistan is bordered by Pakistan in the south and east; Iran in the west; Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, and Tajikistan in the north; and in the far northeast, China. Its territory covers 652,000 km2 and much of it is covered by the Hindu Kush mountain range, which experiences very cold winters. The north consists of fertile plains, while the south-west consists of deserts where temperatures can get very hot in summers. Kabul serves as the capital and its largest city.

Human habitation in Afghanistan dates back to the Middle Paleolithic Era, and the country's strategic location along the Silk Road connected it to the cultures of the Middle East and other parts of Asia. The land has historically been home to various peoples and has witnessed numerous military campaigns, including those by Alexander the Great, Mauryas, Muslim Arabs, Mongols, British, Soviets, and since 2001 by the United States with NATO-allied countries. It has been called "unconquerable" and nicknamed the "graveyard of empires". The land also served as the source from which the Kushans, Hephthalites, Samanids, Saffarids, Ghaznavids, Ghorids, Khaljis, Mughals, Hotaks, Durranis, and others have risen to form major empires.
