Medieval Period (7th - 18th Century)
Under the Hephthalites and Sasanians, many of the Afghan princedoms
were influenced by Hinduism. The Hindu kings (Shahi) were concentrated
in the Kabul and Ghazni areas. Excavated sites of the period include
a major Hindu Shahi temple north of Kabul and a chapel in Ghazni
that contains both Buddhist and Hindu statuary, indicating that
there was a mingling of these two religions.
