Sitting in a fertile river valley, the city of Herat has a diverse history spanning over 3,000 years. Emerging as one of the region's most important cities in the Middle Ages, the city has been fought over by numerous rulers since the early 18th century CE. Most sightseeing in Herat focuses on the mosques, forts, and shrines, built and rebuilt at various points over the centuries. The fertile nature of the valley has made the city a prime place to try Afghan cuisine, including kichiri goshti (a sticky rice dish) and chainaki (a lamb stew).
