THE BUDDAHS AT BAMIAN…. OR WHAT REMAINS OF THEM.


Less famously, hundreds of small monastic caves ooze around the Giant Buddhas.

Only the void remains of the once might figures that had witnessed the Silk Road caravans pass by..

A new hitch-hiking monk pays homage to the site…


Sight of Bamian Valley from one of the caves.



A less romantic view of the Buddha.

I saw a special about this on National Geographic. To tell you the truth, I cried. Really sad.
