An Afghan man walks inside the empty seat of the Buddha, which was destroyed by the Taliban, in Bamiyan. Bamiyan, some 124 miles, northwest of Kabul, stands in a deep green and lush valley stretching through central Afghanistan, on the former Silk Road that once linked China  with Central Asia and beyond. The town was home to two nearly 2,000-year-old Buddha statues before they were destroyed by the Taliban, months before their regime was toppled in a US-led invasion in late 2001.
