The archaeological site of huge city of Mohenjo-daro (“Mound of the Dead” in Sindhi), dates back to the 3rd millennium B.C., Indus Valley, Pakistan’s Sind Province. The site is built entirely out of unbaked brick.
One of the largest in the Old World, this site marks the center of the Indus Civilization, also the earliest manifestation of urbanization in South Asia, aged 5,000 years old. The site flourished during the 3rd and 2nd millennia BC for about 800 years, and is considered one of the most advanced cities of the time, with the provision of public buildings and facilities, with extremely sophisticated urban planning and civil engineering.
A wealth of finds have been produced from excavations at Mohenjo-daro, including carved seals, jasper and gold jewellery, tools, balance-scales and weights, as well as children’s toys. Notable artifacts found include the bronze statuette Dancing Girl, as well as Priest-King, a seated male soapstone figure.
Since excavations starting from 1922, it is thought that only about one-third of the site has been uncovered, though it is unfortunately currently under threat due to the saline action due to a rise of the water table of the Indus River.
