Welcome to the joint Community of Bamiyan Development. Our community aims at bringing together experts from diverse disciplines in the area of preservation of the Bamiyan site in Afghanistan. We attempt to bridge the gaps between different generations, desciplines and cultures on a global scale.

This community portal provides professionals a platform to share knowledge, to promote international, intergenerational, interdisciplinary and intercultural cooperation, and to take up the challenges in Bamiyan preservation together. Furthermore, not only Bamiyan but also Afghanistan in general is of interest for this community portal.

Here, related news and events, participating research groups, potential partners, expertise activities are shared within the community to contribute to the recovery of the Bamiyan site. Please have a look at projects regarding Bamiyan and check out its art and media.
