Information on a historical place called TAPEA ZARGARAN 

Sher Mohammad

Tapea Zargaran is situated about 30 km west of Mazar City which belongs to Balkh district. The discovered monuments from this place are an indication of 2000 years old history.

On 10 March 2011 I met with a former Mujahiddin Commander named Sher Mohammad who is residing in proximity of this ancient hill, he said about 10 years ago General Dostum had established a military check post on top of the hill in order to take the control of the area and then started digging so many holes for searching monuments.

Within two years they managed to get Golden Statues, Coins, earthenware and various kind of tools representing from the time of a king called Khoon Kar who used to live 2000 years ago in his palace that he had build it which is now completely covered with soil looks like a hill. Moreover, Sher Mohammad added that two year ago he wanted to dig a place close to his house and he could manage with some efforts to find 10 stone poles beautifully curved and designed which is showing the existence of a palace.


After the discovery of these stones he says he immediately informed the ACTED office a French NGO where there was a French archeologist named Mr. Ronald to study the area and to make more professional searching. Mr. Ronal employed 40 laborers for digging and within 41 days they got about 1.5 kg coins and 80 cartons of earthenware & potsherd and some small statues from the BODDA time.

According to Sher Mohammad then Ronald handed over all his discoveries to the Ministry of Culture and Tourism in Kabul, but he says he is not quiet sure if Mr. Ronald gave all the items.

Please remember I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has been taken offline by their original hosters which would be unavailable for viewing if it wasn't for this site. Therefore I would kindly ask you to help support me so that the site can continue doing what I think is an important job as well as reporting on stories the mainstream media would rather you didn't know about. I personally think it is important to host material such as removed reports that show that even FOX News once repoted on Israeli spy rings following the 9.11 hijackers before September 11th Or publishing the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was removed from their site once they enacted some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power.

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation, especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful!
