This is a view of the shell of the "Large Buddha" and the surrounding caves in Bamyan, Afghanistan.  The Buddha statue in this particular cave as well as in another - both dating to the 6th century C.E. - were frequently visited and described over the centuries by numerous travelers on the Silk Road trade routes.  Both statues were infamously destroyed by the Taliban in 2001.
