A big number of government officials, activists, politicians and members of the public attended the inauguration ceremony. 

The renovation of the palace began on May 2016 and was estimated $16.5 million funded by government’s budget. 

The palace was built in the early 1920s during King Amanullah’s reign. 

The palace was an imposing neoclassical building on a hilltop overlooking a flat, dusty valley in the western part of the Afghan capital. But now it has been renovated and there is no sign of destruction around it. 

Designed by French and German architects, it was one of the first buildings in the country to get central heating and running water.
