Dholavira is an ancient city that is located in the state of Gujarat and it is one of the oldest archeological sites that are located in the country. Dholavira is located in the Kutchh Desert Sanctuary in an island that is called Khadir Bet. The sites that are located in the area belong to the Indus Valley Civilization and were primarily occupied till the year 2100 BCE, making it one of the oldest inhabited centers in the country. The entire area is flooded during the monsoon season, due to heavy rains. The site was first discovered in the year 1965 and this is thought to be the fifth largest Harappan archeological site in the area.

The place has been under constant excavation since the year 1990 and many significant discoveries have been made. Some of the items that have been excavated in the area are pots, animal bones, terra cota items, seals, silver and even gold items. The layout or the plan of the entire site has been done with immense sophistication and a large water tank that is located in the place is an example of this.

Another site has been found outside the walls of the fortified city and most of the buildings that have been built here have been made from stone, as opposed to brick like the other Harappan sites.
