Royal Thai Consulate General in Karachi invites Thais and those interested to find opportunities to visit the city of Larkana, including the archaeological site of Mohenjo-daro in Sindh Province, Pakistan. It is one of the most important archaeological sites that is worth studying and visiting. The site also includes a museum that exhibits artifacts from the Indus Valley Civilization.
Mohenjo-daro is located in the northern part of Sindh, about 400 kilometers north of Karachi. It takes about 7 hours to drive by car. It is one of the oldest cities in the world, with an area of about 1,570 rai (620 acres). It is a Indus Valley Civilization site that is over 4,600 years old. The city was once very prosperous in the 26th century BC before being abandoned in the 19th century BC. It was home to a highly advanced civilization in engineering, agriculture, and trade at that time.
Mohenjo-daro was first discovered in the 1920s. Excavations have revealed ruins and structures that show the city plan, houses, roads, stupas, towers, wells, bathing pools, and irrigation systems. This is an important evidence that proves the wisdom and creativity of the ancestors of humans in this region. The archaeological site was also inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1980.
A visit to Mohenjo-daro is a unique opportunity to learn about one of the most important civilizations in human history. The site is a must-see for anyone interested in history, archaeology, or culture.
