Kargah Buddha

Kargah Buddha (Urdu: کارگاہ بدھ; Shina: Yʂhani یݜنی) is an archaeological site located about 6 miles (9.7 km) outside of Gilgit, Gilgit−Baltistan, Pakistan. It is a carved image of a large standing Buddha, some 50 ft (15 m) high, in the cliff-face in Kargah Nala. The carving, which is in a style also found in Baltistan, is estimated to date back to the 7th century.

The image is surrounded by the holes for a wooden house structure, which would have sheltered it from inclement weather.
