Based on the findings of the archeologists of the Ministry of Information and Cultures Afghanistan with ancient history and rich civilizations has about 3000 historical monuments. 
Coincidence to confirming and registering program, work on repairing and preserving of the monuments is continuing. 
He complained that, they had small budget for repairing and preserving the monuments which could not meet at least 3% of their needs. 
But with that small amount of money, they annually repaired 10-15 historical monuments. 
In repairing the monuments, the priority has given to those which are collapsing.
