In this edition of News from Way Far Away: Afghani Buddhas!
While we here in America can't seem to stop talking about what Jon Stewart has dubbed the "Mosque-erade," archaeologists near Kabul have uncovered an ancient Buddhist temple complex with relics at least 1,500 years old.
Back in the 500s (which is a good 1,000 years after the Buddha lived) the area that is now Afghanistan was largely Buddhist. In fact, throughout the years Afghanistan has been a couple different religions.
Back in the good old days, March of 2001, before the war, when the Taliban was just another far away bad guy the US didn't have much to do with, the Buddhas of Bamyan (pictured here) were destroyed. Lets hope these new findings can be saved and studied.
