500-Year-Old Caravanserai in Bamyan Being Restored

An ancient caravanserai in the center of Bamyan, which has a 500-year history, is being restored by an international organization.

Safiullah Raed, head of Bamyan's Information and Culture Department, said that the construction of this historical site will cost $3.5 million, which will be paid by the organization.

This caravanserai, covering an area of 450,000 square meters, was built at the southern entrance gate of Bamyan city for loading and resting passengers. Over many years, large parts of this structure have been destroyed and lost.

The head of Bamyan's Information and Culture Department said: "This caravanserai will be reconstructed as its original model. $3.5 million dollars have been allocated for its construction, and it will be completed within three to four years."

According to Raed, this place will be dedicated to a tourism center.

"The original materials will be used to build this caravanserai to preserve its historical authenticity," said Nasir Samadi, the implementing engineer.

"Preserving historical monuments and preventing their destruction will enhance the tourism industry," said Sayed Abdul Sajjadi, a university scholar.

In the construction of this caravanserai, around 80 workers each day earn 400 afghani.

"Our daily wage is 400 afghani (around $5), this work is good. If this work continues, it will help meet our living needs," said Sayed Mahdi, a worker.

"The wage for constructing this caravanserai is very good for our family, we request that this work continues," said Faqir Shah, another worker.

Along with the restoration of this caravanserai, parts of the city of Zuhak were also restored in this province last year, and construction on historical sites in the Kakrak valley is also planned to begin this solar year.
