Afghanistan Bamiyan Buddha Hazara

A Mujahedin in a Buddhist temple build in the cliff next to the giant Buddha of Bamiyan. Hazarajat, Afghanistan..A complicated maze of caves and grottos encircle this central niche. These were used as sanctuaries, vestibules, assembly halls for the sanctuaries, and as small monastic cells for the monks in attendance. Many were elaborately decorated and all were reached by a complicated series of staircases.
