The forgotten cities of the Indus

The forgotten cities of the Indus

Mohenjo Daro

Mohenjo-daro, is an archeological site in the province of Sindh, Pakistan. Built around 2600 BCE, it was one of the largest settlements of the ancient Indus Valley Civilization.

It was in 1985 when the priest king of Mohenjo-Daro left the country for the first time to go to Aachen, Germany. The German Government and the Government of Pakistan had organized for the first time in cooperation with UNESCO an international exhibition on the Indus Civilization. The exhibition which traveled through whole Europe became a big success, making the third of the earliest civilizations of the world (besides those of Egypt and Mesopotamia) more known to the people.
