My colleague and I visited The Rann of Kutch before this trip. Read it here.
On day 3, a bus from Rann of Kutch dropped us at Bhuj railway station. From there we took an auto ( INR 100 ) to Hotel Raj Mahel ( 4 km from the station ) which we had booked from Goibibo for INR 800 for 1 night.
On Day 4, we left from our Bhuj hotel at 7 am for Dholavira to see the Harappan ruins. I was behaving like an excited History nerd kid throughout !!
We decided a cabbie from Gujarat Tourism itself who was charging us INR 10/ KM. We asked around and found that the rates were the same and decided to proceed with him since the driver was from a credible source.
Mr Uday +91 9978741010, +91 9712471010.
Mr Harshad +91 9662251406, +91 9428810406
Dholavira is 250 km from Bhuj and we took 4 hours to travel one way. Mr Harshad picked us up from our hotel at 7am and dropped us at Bhuj railway station around 7pm ( our train was at 8:30 pm ). The cab cost was INR 4800 (we divided the same between us).
We reached the most awaited ruins around 11 am.
Harappan civilization is believed to be the oldest of the civilizations in the world! It is also believed to be a pioneer for art, culture and innovation ( architecture, maths, physics etc.)
Soon after the discovery of cities like Lothal, Dholavira, Mohenjodaro, and Kalibangan have also been discovered and were come to be known as the Harappan cities / civilization.
