Dholavira
An ancient city, and locally known as Kotada Timba Prachin Mahanagar, Dholavira, is one of the largest and most prominent archaeological sites in India, belonging to the Indus Valley Civilization. It is located on the Khadir bet island in the Kutch Desert Wildlife Sanctuary, Great Rann of Kutch and Kachchh district of Gujarat. The site is surrounded by water in the monsoon season. One of the unique features of Dholavira is the sophisticated water conservation system of channels and reservoirs, the earliest found anywhere in the world and completely built out of stone, of which 3 are exposed.
