Darya Ajdahar village, (Dragon Valley) Bamyan.
The new village of Ajdahar lies at the head of the valley, built by the UN (UNHCR) for Hazara returnees from Iran and Pakistan.
Under the 1996-2001 Taliban rule Hazaras were targets of many attacks and harsh persecution. During the Taliban years many Hazaras left Afghanistan for neighboring countries to escape persecution and even death. As Bamyan has become more stable some of them have returned home.
