The chief archaeologist, professor Zemaryali Tarzi, has spent years searching there for a 300-meter-long sleeping Buddha described in the journal of Xuanzang, a Chinese pilgrim who traveled to central Afghanistan around 630 A.
It is described as lying down horizontally with a length of about 300 meters -- and the form of the Buddha is said to have 1,000 legs."In the past three or four years, Tarzi's excavations at the eastern temple also have recovered the heads of dozens of Buddhist statues.
And then the world would be able to see what an important discovery this is."Afghanistan's Cultural History Once a stopping point along the Silk Road between China and the Middle East, researchers think Bamiyan was the site of monasteries housing as many as 5,000 monks during its peak as a Buddhist center in the 6th and 7th centuries.
