  • The greater Indus region was home to the largest of the four ancient urban civilizations of Egypt, Mesopotamia, South Asia and China.
  • It was not discovered until the 1920's. Most of its ruins, even its major cities, remain to be excavated.
  • The ancient Indus Civilization script has not been deciphered. Many questions about the Indus people who created this highly complex culture remain unanswered, but other aspects of their society can be answered through various types of archaeological studies.
  • Harappa was a city in the Indus civilization that flourished around 2600 to 1700 B.C.E. in the western part of South Asia.
  • The Harappans used the same size bricks and standardized weights as were used in other Indus cities such as Mohenjo Daro and Dholavira.
  • These cities were well planned with wide streets, public and private wells, drains, bathing platforms and reservoirs.
  • One of its most well-known structures is the Great Bath of Mohenjo Daro. Hence, The 'Ring wells', excavated in the earliest cities that were developed about 2500 years ago, were used for Bathing.
