Hinduism - Where Is The Ancient City Of Lothal In India?

 


Lothal is an ancient city and archeological site in the current state of Gujarat, near the Gulf of Cambay.

Between the fourth and third millennia B.C.E., Lothal was one of the towns of the Indus Valley civilization, a highly developed urban culture that thrived in the Indus Valley area.

Lothal was a harbor city, albeit the current location is considerably inland due to silting.

The harbor's size indicates that it was a significant port.

Archaeological evidence reveals that Lothal flourished for about 500 years after Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro, the Indus Valley civilization's two major towns, fell into decline.
