PHOTO: Fakirs in Afghanistan (1880)

This photo, dated October 1880, was taken in Kandahar, Afghanistan. The men in the photo are fakirs, ascetic Sufi Muslim mystics and holy men who have taken vows to live only on what they get by begging – one man in the photo is holding a begging bowl for this purpose.
