Largest Harrapan (Indus Valley) Site in India


Rakhigarhi covers an estimated area of 2180 hectares, making it the largest Harappan (Indus Valley) site known in India and second largest in the subcontinent, after Mohenjodaro in Pakistan.  The site is imperiled by unchecked urban development and lack of proper management to ensure its long-term sustainability.  Only small portions of this site have been excavated thus far, and the findings have yielded important discoveries.





With the support of Global Heritage Fund, a new map set has been produced which reviews the published archaeological maps of the site, and presents them over recent DigitalGlobe satellite imagery.  See the maps here.

Depression Between RGR-2 and RGR-1 Here we see the depression that runs between RGR-2, the largest exposed mound at Rakhigarhi, and RGR-1, a slightly smaller mound that has had minimal disturbance either by excavation or recent construction. Notice the official boundary wall constructed by the Archaeological Survey of India between the two mounds, and the large tree that grows on the banks of a small buffalo pond that separates the mounds.

Encroachment at site at rakhigarhi is a very crucial factor for excavation .The local administration looking very active on this matter .I think if govt agree to resettlement  the matter could be resolve easily .I also prefer this solutions .
