The Harappan civilisation is sometimes called the Mature Harappan culture to distinguish it from these cultures.As of 1999, over 1,056 cities and settlements had been found, of which 96 have been excavated, mainly in the general region of the Indus and Ghaggar-Hakra Rivers and their tributaries.Among the settlements were the major urban centres of Harappa, Mohenjo-daro (UNESCO World Heritage Site), Dholavira, Ganeriwala in Cholistan and Rakhigarhi.

The Indus Valley Civilisation (IVC) was a Bronze Age civilisation (3300–1300 BCE; mature period 2600–1900 BCE) mainly in the northwestern regions of the South Asia, extending from what today is northeast Afghanistan to Pakistan and northwest India.

It flourished in the basins of the Indus River, which flows through the length of Pakistan, and along a system of perennial, mostly monsoon-fed, rivers that once coursed in the vicinity of the seasonal Ghaggar-Hakra river in northwest India and eastern Pakistan.

Aridification of this region during the 3rd millennium BCE may have been the initial spur for the urbanisation associated with the civilisation, but eventually also reduced the water supply enough to cause the civilisation's demise, and to scatter its population eastward.

Inhabitants of the ancient Indus river valley developed new techniques in handicraft (carnelian products, seal carving) and metallurgy (copper, bronze, lead, and tin).

The Indus cities are noted for their urban planning, baked brick houses, elaborate drainage systems, water supply systems, and clusters of large non-residential buildings.

The Indus Valley Civilisation is also known as the Harappan Civilisation, after Harappa, the first of its sites to be excavated in the 1920s, in what was then the Punjab province of British India, and now is Pakistan.There were earlier and later cultures, often called Early Harappan and Late Harappan, in the same area of the Harappan Civilisation.1 bedroom flat for rent in kotturpuram 1 bedroom flat for sale at south chennai 1 bedroom house rental avadi 1 bedroom rent flats in adyar 1 bhk flat on rent chennai south 1 bhk for rent in tidel park 1 bhk house for rent in porur 1 bhk house for rent in velacheri 1 bhk house rent east tambaram 1 bhk in rt nagar for rent 1 bhk rent velachery 1 bhk velachery flat 2 bedroom flats in east tambaram 2 bedroom houses for rent 2 bhk flat for sale in nanganallur You are currently viewing ads in Chennai.Here you will find ads for sale, purchase, rentals and services related to Homes , Cars, Two-wheelers & other vehicles for sale and rent.Find Jobs, Electronic & Electrical Goods, Home Appliances & Furniture, Education, Hotel Accommodations, Apartments for Rent, Vacation Cottages for Rent and offers related to Travel, Matrimony, Friends & Dating, Pets, Health & Beauty, Art & Antiques, Books, Clothes, Jewelry & Accessories, Music etc.Excavated ruins of Mohenjo-daro, Sindh province, Pakistan, showing the Great Bath in the foreground.
