Historical Ruins from Gandhara Era “Taxila”

JEN’s international staff of  manage projects in Afghanistan from the Islamabad office, and close from there, are historical ruins called "Taxila" from  Gandhara era.
The ruins, built about 2,500 years ago, is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
At the museum next to the ruins, many old coins and Buddha statues are displayed.One can imagine what life in that era was like from observing such objects.

The basis of these ruins has remained well intact from that era.There are also ruins of temples and towers.
2,500 year ago, Japan was in the Yayoi era, and you can notice that Afghanistan was more developed compared to Japan around that time.

There are many things you cannot see in Japan, such as Buddha statues from BC.
If you are interested in archeology, I would recommend visiting here.
