Takht Bhai (or Takht Bahi) is a Buddhist monastic complex dating to the 1st century BCE. The complex is regarded by archaeologists as being particularly representative of the architecture of Buddhist monastic centers from its era. It was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1980. The word Takht Bhai may have different explanations. In Sanskrit, takht means "well" and bhai means "on a high surface", so the whole word means "well on a high surface". In Persian, takht means "throne".
