Dholavira-Janan Road

The ruins of Dholavira, one of the two largest Harappan sites in India, are an archeological site located in Kutch, Gujarat. This historical site is located in the Kutch Desert Wildlife Sanctuary and is surrounded by the great expanse of Rann of Kutch. It houses some of the most amazing artefacts of that time. Various excavations here by the Archaeological Survey of India have unearthed antiquities such as beads, seals, gold, silver, animal bones, terracotta ornaments and pottery. The ruins of the Harappan civilisation narrate the story of its rise and fall in seven stages, from the very beginning to the absolute end. Here one can also see the world famous planned water conservation systems as well. Dholavira can be reached by taking a cab from Bhuj, which lies about 250 km from here. A historical marvel in every right, Dholavira will definitely take you on an amazing ride through our rich and marvellous past.
