There is an alley in the Shahr-e-Arai area of Kabul, which is known as the oven-making alley.
According to the historical narratives, this alley is named after the ancient business of its inhabitants. It is more than eighty years old that the alley was built in Tanzo, which according to the locals used to be Mandavi alley. On both sides of this alley, there are views of houses with old architecture in Kabul.
The ovens built in this alley have a good market and these ovens are even sent to the provinces for sale. The markets for these masters are the provinces, the capital itself is full of buyers.
But according to the owner of ovens, making an oven is not an easy task and it takes as much trouble as building a castle for it, but they continue to do so, because young people want their older relatives to be kept alive. They bring the tandoor flower soil from the Sugar Valley. For Building a tandoor requires a lot of effort.
Old generation says the alley was here before the Mandavi oven and that goods were bought and sold here.
Shahr-e-Ara is the name of a garden in this place that Aunt Zahir al-Din Babar had built for Shahr-e-Ara’s daughter, and after that this place was also named after her. The road to this oven-making alley was also small. The two cars barely passed each other. This road was also asphalted later.
Tanur Sazi alley in Shahr-e-Ara, Kabul, also has a view of a historical tower, which apparently used to be a military fort with seven towers.
