Hazara “Ger” in Bamyan

Below is a video from American tourists who visited Bamyan in 1970s.

This historic footage shows Mongol-like “Gers” in Bamyan, the cultural and historical capital of Hazarajat, the Hazaraland in Afghanistan.

The shape and life-style inside these “Gers” are exactly like that of the Mongol Ger. Unfortunately today there is almost no “Ger” in Bamyan due to the period of conflicts and mass migration, which largely affected the culture and lifestyle of Hazaras.
