Hazara “Ger” in Bamyan


Below is a video from American tourists who visited Bamyan in 1970s.

This historic footage shows Mongol-like “Gers” in Bamyan, the cultural and historical capital of Hazarajat, the Hazaraland in Afghanistan.

The shape and life-style inside these “Gers” are exactly like that of the Mongol Ger. Unfortunately today there is almost no “Ger” in Bamyan due to the period of conflicts and mass migration, which largely affected the culture and lifestyle of Hazaras.

  1. I love to see in Afghanistan,the beauty of the historic country rather than terrorism,bloodshed,cruelty,warmonger although I am Indian but I have no situation to go there truely. Many historic sculpture in Afghanistan attract me very much.There is a relation between India and Afghanistan.I am very disappointed when I saw that Taliban insurgent and rebels were destroyed Bamyan Sculpture and Buddhist Statue.I think the people of Afghanistan should know the historic value for the ancient culture and heritage,otherwise it will destroy in coming one decade,then the situation will very upset for all. So start a campaign in Afghanistan to save this heritage cultural statue.I request all 1st world country including USA to come forward and try a positive notch for this.
