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 Kalibangan?


Kalibangan is an archeological site in Rajasthan's western state, a short distance from Pakistan's border.

Kalibangan is one of the Indus Basin Civilization's towns, and it is part of a cluster of settlements in what many archaeologists think was the Saraswati River valley, albeit the river now vanishes into the desert.

The city of Kalibangan is almost as big as Harappa, Mohenjo-Daro, and Lothal combined.

The city design is almost similar to the others, illustrating the vastness of this ancient culture's mystery.
