Harappa is a tourist attraction located in Sahiwal District, Punjab, Pakistan. It is the first city found in the Indus Valley Civilization and the second largest city is Mohenjo-Daro. These two are contemporary cities that were twin capitals. The urban planning of both cities is similar.
The remains of the ancient city of Harappa were discovered near Sahiwal in 1946. Important buildings were discovered during the excavations. Near the fort are military barracks-style buildings built in two rows, with seven houses in one row and eight houses in the other. Each house has streets in front, back, right, and left. Every house has a room and a yard. Each street is three to four feet wide. The entrance to the house is closed. These barrack-like houses are believed to have been the homes of slaves. Large mills have also been found in Harappa which are believed to be flour mills. Beyond these mills is a large granary. It was situated on the bank of the river and the entrance was from the riverside.
Harappa belongs to the mature period. Which is the period from 2500 BC to 1700 BC.
