Dubai: Take home a piece of Afghanistan—be it leather, carpets or agricultural products from the newly-opened Afghanistan Pavilion at Global Village.

Afghani Counselor Fazullah Reshten, Afghani Consul-General Atiqullah Atifmal, and Global Village CEO Saeed Ali Bin Redha opened the pavilion last week as part of the growing number of pavilions in the theme park this season.

Known for its famed dried fruit and nuts, Afghanistan will showcase its harvest for the year at Global Village. This includes mountain almonds, pistachios, pine, walnuts and dried black and white berries, apricots, figs, and raisins, among others. Visitors may also try the Afghani confetti, ‘Noqol’, which is made from sugar-coated mountain almonds.
