In 12 of the caves, several wall and ceiling paintings were discovered.
In December 2004, Japanese researchers stated that the wall paintings at caves of Bamyan statues were painted between the fifth and the ninth centuries, rather than the sixth to eighth centuries.
It is believed that the paintings were done by artists traveling on the Silk Road, (Rah-e-Abrishum) the trade route between China and the West.
Scientists from the National Research Institute for Cultural Properties in Tokyo (Japan), the Centre of Research and Restoration of the French Museums-CNRS (France), the Getty Conservation Institute (United States) and the ESRF (the European Synchrotron radiation facility) in Grenoble analyzed the samples from the paintings, typically less than 1 mm across.

Around 95% of the Bamyan city population are Hazaras, and 5% are a variety of other ethnicities in the region.
Bamyan Afghanistan was strategically placed to thrive from the Silk Road caravans which crossed the region trading between the Roman Empire, China, Central and Southern Asia.
