Harappa Pakistan (Indus valley civilization)

Harappa is a large city of the Indus Civilization, and one of the best-known sites in Pakistan, located on the bank of the Ravi River in Punjab Province.

This early urban archaeological site was occupied between about 3300 and 1500 BC. Harappa includes an area of about 250 acres, and may be about twice that, given that much of the site has been covered by the flooding of the Ravi. Intact structural remains include those of a citadel, a granary, and two cemeteries. The mud adobe bricks of significant architectural remains were robbed in antiquity.
