Turquoise Mountain was established in March 2006, at the request of His Royal Highness Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales, and His Excellency President Karzai, President of Afghanistan. It has the three-fold objective of regenerating historic urban areas, renewing traditional Afghan arts and architecture, and spurring the sustainable development of the nation’s craft industry.
