A well known archaeological site, Dholavira in Bhachau Taluka of Kutch District, State of Gujarat, India, has the remains of ancient Indus Valley and Harappan Civilization. Locally famed as Kotada Timba, this site is one of the five largest Harappan sites and the major archaeological sites in India that belongs to the Indus Valley Civilization.

The site was discovered in 1967 and has been under excavation since 1990 by the Archaeological Survey of India.
