Qaysar District (Qaīşār)

Qaysar (Qeysar) district is situated in the southwestern part of the Faryab Province of Afghanistan. The population is 122,300 (2009) with an ethnic composition of 70% Uzbek (Turkic origin), 16% Tajik, 10% Pashtun and 4% Turkman. The district center Qeysar (,1279 m altitude) (Qaisar bazaar), at the edge of the vast desert of Qaisar, has almost the same peculiarities of the Almar bazaar. This bazaar received its name at the end of the nineteenth century.

Qaysar is popular for its great production of grapes and 70% of district population own grape-gardens. The gardeners export tons of raisins to surrounding provinces in the north of the country and abroad to Russia and India as fresh grapes can not be exported due to transportation problems and bad road conditions.

The district is nurtured through the river which starts through famous Terband-I-Turkistan Mountains and flows into Qaisar. The water source is from snow melts and springs. The temperature ranges between -20C (-4F) in winter and 40C (106F) in summer.

The district is also the hometown for one of the most famous late poets of Afghanistan namely Nadim Qaysari of whom Afghans inherited a valuable poetry book named Dewan Nadim. The book was compiled and published by Information and Culture Department of Faryab Province after his death as it could not be published before due to lack of funding. The book contains the poetry works and cultural activities which Nadim achieved during the period of his life.

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.
