The ancient site of Mohenjado in Sindh, a UNESCO World Heritage Site unfolds archaic ruins and stunning models of earlier lifestyle. Built around 2600 B.C, Mohenjodaro is a remarkable tourist destination to explore with extraordinary layouts and structures.
Mohenjo Daro, built around 2600, had been abandoned around 1700 B.C. Sir John Marshall’s archaeologists rediscovered it in the 1920s. His car, still in the Mohenjo-daro museum, shows his presence, struggle, and dedication for Mohenjo-daro. Ahmad Hasan Dani and Mortimer Wheeler carried out further excavations in 1945. Mohenjo-daro in ancient times had been most likely the administrative center of the ancient Indus Valley Civilization. The most developed and advanced city in South Asia during its peak, Mohenjo-Daro’s planning and engineering showed the importance of the city to the people of the Indus valley.
Mohenjo-Daro had been a remarkable construction, considering its antiquity. It has a planned layout based on a grid of streets, laid out in perfect patterns. At its height the city probablyhad around 35,000 residents. The buildings of the city, of particularly advanced designed, had structures constructed of same-sized sun dried bricks of
baked mud and burned wood. The public buildings of those cities also suggest a high degree of social organization.
Mohenjo-daro had been successively destroyed and rebuilt at least seven times. Each time, the new cities built
directly on top of the old ones. Flooding by the Indus may have been the cause of destruction. The city divided into two parts, the Citadel and the Lower City. Most of the Lower City remains uncovered, but that the Citadel had the
public bath, a large residential structure designed to house 5,000 citizens and two large assembly halls, has been determined. Mohenjo-daro, Harappa and their civilization, vanished without trace from history until discovered in the 1920s. Although extensively excavated in the 1920s, in-depth excavationsnsuspended in the 1960s.
