Daykundi (Pashto: دايکندي ولايت; Persian: دایکندی), sometimes spelled as Daikundi, Dāykondī, Daikondi or Daykundi, is one of the thirty-four provinces of Afghanistan, with its capital being Nili. It is located in central Afghanistan, about 310 kilometres from Kabul, and falls into the traditionally ethnic Hazara region known as the Hazarajat. The population of the province is 431,300, according to Afghan census, which is dominated by ethnic Hazaras although there are some other groups such as Pashtun and Baloch.
Daykundi was established on March 28, 2004, when it was created from the isolated Hazara-dominated northern districts of neighboring Oruzgan province. Until 2006, Gizab was the only district in Daykundi province with a majority Pashtun population, but in May 2006 the government of Afghanistan took Gizab from Daykundi and re-annexed it with Oruzgan province to the south (though this is not reflected in the maps on this page).
