Harappa is the first discovered site of this civilization excavated in 1921 by a team led by Daya Ram Sahni. It was a major urban center during its mature phase surrounded by extensive walls. It is located in Punjab Province, Pakistan, on an old bank/bed of the River Ravi. Kalibangan (black bangles) is in the Hanumangarh district of Rajasthan. It was located on the banks of the now dried-up Saraswati River. The oldest ploughed field, evidence of earliest recorded Earthquake (which might have ended this city itself), Fire-Altars, Charging bull, tiled floor, two kinds of burials (circular and rectangular graves), bones of camels etc. are important findings of Kalibangan. Further, this site was different from Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro in the following respects: The bricks in other sites were baked ones, while Kalibangan bricks are earthen ones. There was no drainage system in Kalibangan. Due to these, Kalibangan is not considered a well-planned city as compared to other important sites of Indus Valley. Chanhudaro is situated 130 km south of Mohenjo-Daro in Sindh and is the only Harappan city that does not have a fortified citadel. The Chanhu Daro has given evidence of factories of various figurines, seals, toys, bone implements so it has been interpreted that it was a settlement with lots of artisans and was an industrial town. 1 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on WhatsApp Cancel the best answer Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
