An example of this is the Parliament House, Indira Gandhi Hospital, and other infrastructure built by India. There are many such videos on social media by many YouTubers giving information about them.

India once built the Parliament building in Afghanistan. The National Assembly is located next to the famous Darul Aman Palace in Darulman, a southwestern section of Kabul where many important national institutions are found.

The current building for the assembly was constructed by India as its contribution to the reconstruction of Afghanistan. There is a very big flag in front of the Parliament of Afghanistan on which the Taliban flag is hoisted these days. This pole is very expensive, it cost several millions.
