Hinduism - Where Is The Archaeological Site Of Mohenjo-Daro?

 

Archeological site on the Indus River, roughly 200 miles north of Karachi, in contemporary Pakistan.

Mohenjo-Daro is one of the Indus Valley towns, a highly developed urban culture that thrived in the Indus Valley area during the fourth and third millennia BC.

Although archeological work is ongoing in other towns, Harappa and Mohenjo Daro have been the most thoroughly explored.

The similarities between these sites give information about this civilization's material culture.

The "Great Bath," a massive water tank made of brick and sealed with pitch, is one of the attractions of Mohenjo-Daro.

Scholars believe it had something to do with ceremonial purity.

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.
