Buddha Eden Garden (18 photos)
by Paulo Goncalves Gold Star Critiquer/Gold Star Workshop Editor/Gold Note Writer [C:  W: 216 N: 1818] (7958)

The Buddha Eden Garden is an area of about 35 hectares designed and conceived by Comendador JosÚ Berardo in response to the destruction of the Giant Bamyan Buddhas, sculpted in the rocks of the valley of Bamyan in central Afghanistan and which had for centuries been a cultural and spiritual reference.
Comendador Berardo was profoundly shocked by the attitude of the Taliban Government, which intentionally destroyed these unique monuments of World Heritage.
