    Bamyan Valley, Afghanistan


    The Buddhas of Bamyan were two 6th-century monumental statues of Gautama Buddha carved into the side of a cliff in the Bamyan valley in the Hazarajat region of central Afghanistan, 230 kilometers (140 mi) northwest of Kabul at an elevation of 2,500 meters (8,200 ft). Built-in 507 CE (smaller) and 554 CE (larger), the statues represented the classic blended style of Gandhara art.  They were respectively 35 and 53 m (115 and 174 ft) tall.

    The statues were dynamited and destroyed in March 2001 by the Taliban, after the Taliban government declared that they were idols.
