Three years ago the first Gole Badam Festival was held in Daykundi Province. In 2010 Hazara People International Network proposed to create this Festival in order to celebrate the almond tree’s florescence. Almonds are the main agriculture product in the Province and many families base their subsistence on it. While the rest of Afghanistan is famous for the opium’s production, Hazaristan and especially Daykundi have chosen to base their production on almonds.
