Correct Answer - Option 4 : Rakhigarhi

The correct answer is Rakhigarhi.

  • The site of Rakhigarhi is one of the five known biggest townships of Harappan civilization on the Indian sub-continent.
  • It is located in the Hisar district of Haryana state in India.
  • The other four are
    • Harappa, Mohenjodaro, and Ganveriwala in Pakistan and Dholavira (Gujarat) in India.
  • This site was excavated by Shri Amarendra Nath of the Archeological Survey of India.

  • The archaeological excavations revealed a mature Harappan phase represented by a planned township having mud-brick as well as burnt-brick houses with a proper drainage system.
  • Animal sacrificial pit lined with mud-brick and triangular and circular fire alters on the mud floor have also been excavated that signifies the ritual system of Harappans.
  • Other antiquities included blades; terracotta and shell bangles; beads of semiprecious stones, terracotta, shell and copper objects; animal figurines, toy cart frame and wheel of terracotta; bone points; inscribed steatite seals and sealings.
  • The excavations have yielded a few extended burials, which certainly belong to a very late stage, maybe the medieval times.
