Bamiyan, the Afghan town which shot into prominence when the Taliban blew up two ancient statues of the Buddha in 2001, has been selected to be the SAARC cultural capital for a year beginning April 2015. Dhaka will be the SAARC cultural capital in 2016-17.

The year 2016-17 will also be declared the SAARC Year of Cultural Heritage.

The SAARC countries also agreed to formulate proposals for transnational nominations for the World Heritage List and a regional list of heritage sites.
