Dholavira: remnants of a great civilization
Indus Valley Civilization is the largest known ancient civilization that flourished around the Indus River basin during 3300–1300 BCE. Also known as Harappan Civilization, some of the historical remains of this civilization has been excavated by the Archaeological Survey of India at Dholavira in Gujarat State, India.
Spread over an area of more than 100 hectares, the remains at Dholavira consist of two parts – the fortified city and the cemetery. Once a well settled city, the city was a multi-divisional settlement consisting of a citadel (castle and bailey), a middle town, a lower town and a series of reservoirs surrounding them.
