  • R. Stuckert (1994): Erinnerungen an Afghanistan, S. 151: Federzeichnung: „Abb. 146: Lageskizze von Pul-e Khumri“.
    S. 35: „[…] Die Stadt ist auf zwei schmale Streifen beidseits des Flusses verteilt. Die einzelnen Quartiere wirken zusammenhanglos. Man unterscheidet die Arbeitersiedlung mit einstöckigen Reihenhäusern und einem Bogen-Bazar, das Einkaufszentrum und die Stadtpforte mit ‚noblerem‘ Bazar, das Beamtenviertel mit dem Krankenhaus auf dem rechten Ufer des Flusses, die Fabrik mit den besseren Beamtenhäusern und dem Hotel links des Flusses.

    S. 136: „In 1970, Pul-i-Khumri is an industrial town specializing in the production of textiles and cement. In Kakar, northwest of the town coal is extracted. The town’s development began on a dam on the Ghori river and an electric power plant was set up. A textile plant was in operation two years later, producing by 1970 about 74,000 square meters of cloth. A second dam was built some years after completion of the first one, and their combined capacity in 1960 was about 11,000 kilowat[t] power.“
    „Elementary schools for girls and boys were opened in recent years, and cultivation was greatly expanded with the availability of water for irrigation. The town greatly increased in size and a huge park has made it greener and more beautiful. The town got its name from a bridge by which the Charikar-i-Haibak road crosses the Surkhab.“
