Harappa is part of indus valley civilization. Harappa of indus valley civilization is located approx. 15 miles south of Sahiwal on Grand Trunk Road, (G.T.Road). Harappa has a railway station.
Indus valley civilization is approximately 4000 years old and considered amongst the oldest civilizations of world. It is believed that approx. 24000 residents were dwelling in the city at that time.
Indus valley civilization disappeared from the world. But their ruins are still there. It is unbelieveable to see how advance and civilized these people were. It is believed that they used to worship idols. Many sculptures have been discovered from there. Due to terrorism in Pakistan, it is unfortunate that foreign visitors resist to come here to see the civilization. This is one of the best learning places for archaeologists and historians. We are looking forward for a peaceful Pakistan so that world can explore our treasures.
