Remote sensing is a science that collect and interprets the information regarding an object which has been located remotely. Thermal RS and GIS permit us to collect and analyse the land surface temperature. The LST is a major sign of the energy stability at the land surface, and measurements of LST are essential for lots of meteorological, hydrological, and biogeochemical investigations. This paper describes the technique in order to regain the LST from Landsat-8-OLI/TIR Thermal Infrared sensor (TIR) of Laghman province 06th Aug 2017 and 03rd Aug 2019 and compare its result with each other. The consequence explains some increases in urban areas as well as differences at LST in the area. The virtue of this study display that no similar study was accomplished to determine the LST changes, in Laghman province. The result has described that Max and Min temperature was found (-4.6 C and 37.68 C) at 6th Aug-2017 and (2.03 C and 38.05C) at 3th Aug-2019 respectively. In 6th Aug-2017 the Max Temperature is (0.37 C) lower than the Max Temperature in 03th Aug-2019, and at the same time, the Min Temperature is (6.635C) lower, which shows fast worming during two years in the mentioned area. This method is an efficient way to calculate the LST of remote areas where aren’t gourd monitoring stations.
