Harappan Ruins in Haryana

When we say Indus Valley Civilization, we usually refer to the sites of Mohenjo-Daro and Harrappa located in present day Pakistan. Those are not the only ones though for Harappan sites have been discovered in other parts of India as well. Recently the first Harappan burrial site was discovered in Baghpat in Uttar Pradesh. In 2004, a Harappan site was found in the town of Bagasara in Gujarat. This site which dates back to 2500 B.C was found to have a shell making workshop, fortifications, and knives with bone handles.

Now archaeologists have found the ruins of a city dating back to Harappan times at Farmana Khas in Haryana.

He said that with the discovery of the ruins of Indus-Saraswati Harrapa civilisation on the banks of ancient course of river Yamuna, the belief has been further strengthened that it has been the civilisation of the people, who belonged to the era of Rigveda. The ruins related to the same civilisation have also been found at Sanoli in Uttar Pradesh along the ancient course of river Yamuna. [Harappan city buried in Haryana’s Rohtak district]
