Scientists construct 3-D image of Bamiyan Buddhas

swissinfo October 5, 2003 12:00 PM

Scientists from the Federal Institute for Technology in Zurich have prepared a three-dimensional blueprint for reconstructing the Bamiyan Buddhas in Afghanistan.

The two giant statues, the tallest and oldest standing Buddhas in the world, were destroyed by the former Taliban regime in 2001.

This would be a fabulous thing if they could rebuild these statues!!

The tourism they would generate as a result would help the country.

THey would also be seen as a symbol of triumph over adversity
