Dholavira: Dholavira is an ancient town situated in the state of Gujarat. It lies on the North West corner of the Khadir Island and stands surrounded by water in the monsoons. It was discovered in the year 1967 AD. The ruins of the settlement found here are believed to be more than 5000 years old. These excavation sites are one of the largest Harappan sites in India. If you are interested in knowing about the ancient history and the primordial civilization of the country then Dholavira is the perfect place for you.
It is estimated that Dholavira is even older than the port city of Lothal. The excavations conducted here came up with a number of ancient artifacts, like seals, beads, animal bones, gold, silver, terracotta ornaments and vessels linked to Mesopotamia. There is even evidence that the town was an important trade center between other settlements in Sind, Punjab and Western Asia. The most fascinating discovery of Dholavira is the large inscription, comprising of ten letters in the Indus script. Each letter has been engraved on slices of crystalline material
You can also visit the Fossil Park. Look at amazing view at the place. We had to walk for about 2.5 kms on little hill. Then only we got to see Fossil Park, which is surrounded by green railing. And breathtaking white desert was again welcoming us with open sky…..
