The complex is regarded by archaeologists as being particularly representative of the architecture of Buddhist monastic centers from its era. The word Takht Bhai may have different explanations. One is that Takht means “well” and Bhai means “Top” so there is a well on the top of the hill thats why it is called Takht Bhai. In Avestan, Takht means “capital” and bahi means “good”, so the whole word means “the good capital”.
