Photographer's Note

This old castle acts as a lookout post for invading tribes. There are several such fortifications along the Bamiyan Valley to protect the ancient cities built along the cliff side.

The warlike tendencies of this region have existed throughout the ages. It's not just a modern phenomenon.
