Kapisa is one of the 34 provinces of Afghanistan. The city was a historical citadel and seat of an Achaemenid Satrap named Vivana. He was loyal to Dariush the Great and stood ground against usurper Smerdis who then appointed his own Satrap on the head of an army that besieged the citadel in Kapisa for several weeks.
Vivana was able to break the siege and defeat the rebel army on Dec, 29, 522 B.C.
The citadel was destroyed by Macedonian Alexander during his conquest of the Persian Empire.
