New buildings for Bamyan University

Three new buildings for agriculture and education faculties as well as the administrative affairs department of Bamyan University were inaugurated on Thursday.

Funded by the Ministry of Higher Education, the buildings cost USD 580,000.

Second Vice-President Mohammad Karim Khalili, who attended the inaugural ceremony, hoped more students would find their way to the university as a result of the projects.

University of Bamyan is situated in Bamyan province, central Afghanistan. It was established around 1994 (some sources indicate 1997), with the support of the Hazara political party Hezb-e-Wahdat.

The University was shut down after the Taliban took over the city of Bamyan in September 1998. Two of the buildings were stripped for scrap, while the third was sued as a Taliban barracks and communications center, which was later destroyed by U.S. airstrikes in 2001.
