Birds in Flight

Birds in Flight

Across from the Panjshanbe Bazaar lies the Mausoleum of Sheikh Muslihiddi who was known to be a holy miracle worker in ancient times.   Mongol invaders destroyed the city as well as the mausoleum in the early 13th century.   The mosque and madrassah are slowly being reconstructed now that the Soviets are gone as well.

As worshipers complete their afternoon prayers in the courtyard, a mother entertains her child by feeding the birds.
