Dholavira is also the larger of the two most remarkable excavations of the Indus Valley Civilization or Harappan culture, dating back to 4500 years ago.

Dholavira, an Ancient quaint city frozen in time with its immense archaeological interest. It is located on the Khadir Bet island in the Great Rann of Kutch. It is also the most accessible of the major Harappan sites. Older than the Egyptian Pyramids, Dholavira displays remnants of a highly sophisticated urbane culture and archaeology, inhabited as early as 2650 BCE by a tribe way ahead of its time.

Be prepared to embrace an event of a lifetime in Rann of Kutch, one of the most isolated deserts in the world, sought after for its scenic white-carpet landscape.
