Gandhara, at the foot of the Hindu Kush, was once the intersection of important trade routes. Along these trails a lively cultural exchange took place: Western antique culture reached Gandhara with the Asian campaign of Alexander the Great (356–323 BC). From India came Buddhism, and from central Asia nomadic peoples such as the Kushans. All these different influences merged into a unique Buddhist culture which flourished from the 1st to the 5th centuries.
