Southern Reservoir in Dholavira, a harappan city
Dholavira is an ancient city situated in the State of Gujarat, India. A famed archaeological site, Dholavira is one of the largest and most prominent Harappan cities in India, belonging to the Indus Valley Civilization. The site was discovered in 1967 and has been under excavation since 1990 by the Archaeological Survey of India.
One of the most striking features in this excavated site is its water-management system. Out of the 250 acres of land, about 25 acres have been taken up by 16 rock-cut reservoirs of various sizes that harvested water from the two monsoon season rivulets called Mandsar and Manhar.
