    • The Afghan Defense University (ADU) is located near the Qargha Reservoir, a short distance west of Kabul in Afghanistan. It houses various educational establishments for the Afghan Armed Forces. The university was constructed on a 1,500-acre (6.1 km2) plot that began being cleared in mid-2008, and that previously served a variety of military roles since the Soviet War in Afghanistan.

      A cornerstone laying ceremony was conducted in April 2010 and the construction was completed in 2013. The total cost for the first phase of work was $200 million. Institutions that are located at ADU include the National Military Academy of Afghanistan.
