The Barrington Atlas Directory notes: Erk Kala/Gyaur Kala TKM.

The archaeological remains of Merv are comprised of five walled cities dating from the sixth century BC to the 18th century. These are known as Erk Kala, Gyaur Kala, Sultan Kala, Abdullah Khan Kala, and Bairam Ali Khan Kala and may be grouped into three settlement phases that correspond to three periods, namely ancient, medieval and post-medieval.
