Dholavira: A Harappan City

.

Dholavira is part of the Tentative list of India in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.

Dholavira is an archaeological site that contains ruins of an ancient Indus Valley Civilization/Harappan city. The fortified city flourished between 3000 and 1800 BCE. It had an efficient water conservation system. Unlike Harappa and Mohenjo-daro, the city was constructed to a pre-existing geometrical plan consisting of three divisions – the citadel, the middle town, and the lower town.
