Rakhigarhi, Haryana - The largest city in the Indus Valley Civilization

Rakhigarhi, Haryana - The largest city in the Indus Valley Civilization

This village in Hisar district in Haryana is an archaeologist's dream. In 1963, archaeologists discovered that this was the site of the largest city in the Indus Valley civilization, much larger than the sites found around Mohenjodaro and Harappa. Although the site was excavated for three winters since 1997, it was stopped due to a CBI investigation for claimed misallocation of funds. Also, the lack of maintenance has rendered the boundary wall useless letting locals steal ancient artifacts from the site and sell it to interested buyers.
