Mohenjo-daro (lit. Hill of the Dead Men)is an archeological site in the region of Sindh, Pakistan. Worked around 2500 BCE, it was probably the biggest settlement of the old Indus Valley development, and one of the world’s most punctual major urban settlements, contemporaneous with the civic establishments of antiquated Egypt, Mesopotamia, Minoan Crete, and Norte Chico. Mohenjo-daro was relinquished in the nineteenth century BCE as the Indus Valley Civilization declined, and the site was not rediscovered until the 1920s. Noteworthy unearthing has since been directed at the site of the city, which was assigned an UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1980.The site is at present undermined by disintegration and ill-advised reclamation.
Mohenjo-daro is found west of the Indus River in Larkana District, Sindh, Pakistan, in a focal situation between the Indus River and the Ghaggar-Hakra River. It is sited on a Pleistocene edge in the flood plain of the Indus River Valley, around 28 kilometers (17 mi) from the town of Larkana. The edge was unmistakable during the hour of the Indus Valley Civilization, enabling the city to remain over the encompassing flood, however ensuing flooding has since covered the vast majority of the edge in sediment stores. The Indus still streams east of the site, however the Ghaggar-Hakra riverbed on the western side is currently dry.
