SITUATION: In the Ziarat Khwaja Abdul Rahman (note 2) near a place called Haji Samad (note 3), which lies at a (travelling?) distance of about 5 km along the Tagab Baghak (note 4) and arrives from south to Qalay-i-Naw (note 5). The (sacred?) cave lies about 15 m above the riverbed in a colline d'argile (hill of mud) on the right bank of a stream, which, transcribed into French, was called Tagao- Borough (Tagab Baghak?) and close to it's source. Is this the –>Kala Nao Cave noted on 30th November 1933 by BYRON (1937 edited 1950: 112-113)?An allegedly large cave, which, starting with an cave entrance obliterated by collapse, offers not much of enterable subterranean space except two or three metres of belly-crawl sized passage (note 1).
