Place of Shining Light
For centuries a major Buddhist pilgrimage site, Bamyan now represents one of the most stable places in war-torn Afghanistan. Although much of the area's cultural treasures lie in rubble due to years of uninterrupted destruction, a trip to Bamyan allows fearless explorers to discover one of the most picturesque valleys in this part of the world. World Heritage-listed since 2003, Bamyan Valley has always served as a meeting place between East and West. At the intersection of ancient trade routes, the area boasts many archaeological sites that reveal a blend of Persian, Turkish, Chinese, Greek, and Indian influences. Bamyan is in Bamyan Province.
