    This was our biggest lord Buddha's statue ever. When we were little we were tough that Tibetans were the 1st and had conquered silk route for many centuries back in ancient times. And modern afghanistan is also part of silk route on foot hill of himalayas. Our ancestors used to do treading all the way to ancient persia/iran. And on their way they would make people build buddha status everywhere. But sadly, after mugual empire entered India, muslim took over the silk route and my ancestors end up paying tax to them instead and they took over our silk route.
