Stone Lion Throne. Koh-i-Mori, Kam Zargar, Kapisa Province.
The face of the lion to the right of the entrance was almost completely obliterated. These lions were part of a throne on which a large figure of a seated Buddha once sat in one of the many Buddhist monasteries clustered some 45 km. North of Kabul during the peak of the Kushan period during the 2nd to the 4th centuries C.E.
