Archaeological Site of Mohenjo-daro
Mohenjo-daro (a.k.a. Moenjodaro and Mohenjodaro) located in today's Sindh province of Pakistan is a great source of archeological information about the lost Indus River Valley civilization. The city is about five thousand years old, and was abandoned around 1700 BCE, probably due to a change of course of the river which supported the civilization. It was rediscovered in the 1920s by archaeologists and has since been elaborately excavated.

Some of the remarkable artifacts of Mohejo-daro are remnants of a drainage
system, a large well, and the famous dancing
figurine. Archeologists believe that repeated flooding by the Indur
River caused several iterations of rebuilding of the city.
