The Museum with a Thousand Faces

The Taliban put a lot of effort into destroying human images and the collection at the Kabul Museum suffered greatly as a result. There is, however, still an incredible collection of Buddhist materials that have survived 16 or 17 centuries which will make a trip down Darul Aman Road worthwhile.

There is even a miniature reproduction of one of the giant Buddhas at Bamiyan that were lost to the world in March of 2001. Take a look over your shoulder as you are purchasing tickets for admission.
