Located in Sindh and built around 2500 BC, Mohenjo Daro is known as the, ‘Lost City of Pakistan’. The Indus city has attracted archaeologists and travelers alike for centuries. With no real, identifiable historical significance, the province leaves visitors with more questions.
The ancient city was built on elevated ground in the Larkana district of Sindh. Mohenjo Daro has no evidence of government. Archaeologists believe that it was likely a city-state, governed by elected officials and leaders.
The city’s heyday was believed to have been between 2500 BC and 1900 BC. Though it was unknown until its discovery in 1921, the province’s well-preserved history and charming architecture makes it a major hotspot.
Pakistan is a popular destination. But, it’s important to make sure you have everything you need for your trip.
All Americans visiting Pakistan should register online with the U.S. Department of State before departure. This will inform the office of your travel plans within the country and will allow them to reach out in the case of an emergency or evacuation.
