The three famous Buddha of Bamiyan were built in the 6th and 7th century. Unfortunately, the Taliban destroyed them in 2001. They are currently being refurbished by the Agha Khan Foundation. They are very impressive, but made to look tiny when compared to the massive size of Afghanistan’s mountain range.
