Dahla Dam

The Dhala Dam is the second largest dam in Afghanistan, located on the Arghandab River. It was constructed in 1952 and was later rehabilitated in 2019 by the Afghan government. It provides irrigation for agriculture and drinking water through a network of canals to the provisional capital of Kandahar. The Taliban recently captured this dam, almost a month after the group blew up a bridge connecting the same to the nearby districts.
