Salam Mr. Dmitriy

The picture you have shown as "Historic Museum of Kabul" is actually that of "Shah-e-Doshamshera" Mosque, which is named after a companion of the Prophet Mohammad(PBUH)- Quais ibn e Lais, whose tomb is just across the road from the mosque (on the right, behind the white building in this picture). He died in 7th century AD.

The Mosque is in central Kabul and was built by King Amanullah's mother in early 20th century.

Kindly update the information.

Красивая мечеть, очень похожа на бывшую православную церковь :-)

I agree with IPAAT - it looks like Russian orthodox church. L.
