Harappan sites on the map
Harappan towns
The Harappan civilization, or Indus Valley Civilization, was the first to establish an accurate system of standardized weights and measures. Terracotta, bronze, and stone were used to produce sculpture, seals, pottery, and jewellery by the Harappans.
Remains of Mohenjo-Daro
The city of Mohenjo-Daro was the most established, with impressive urban planning. When the Indus civilization fell into disarray around \(1900 BCE\), this site was abandoned. The name Mohenjo-Daro is derived from the expression "the mound of the dead." The significance of this site was first recognized in \(1922\), one year after Harappa was discovered. Following excavations, it was discovered that the mounds contain the ruins of the Indus civilization's largest settlement.
Brick well found at Banawali
The civilization that existed in Banawali between \(2600\) and \(1700 BCE \)was known as Early Harappan. Dr R.S. Bisht, a member of India's Archaeological Survey, excavated the site and discovered three distinct cultures: Pre-Harappan, Harappan, and Post-Harappan.
Remains of ruins in Rakhigarhi
Rakhigarhi's beauty has drawn the attention of archaeologists from all over the world. It's closer to present Delhi, North India. Most of the field remains unexplored and unpublished.
From \(1997\) to \(2000\), Amarendra Nath, the Superindent Archaeologist, excavated the Rakhigarhi site. The root of the Harappan civilization's history, according to Dr Shinde, was a big question.
