3. Short Note/Paragraph
Moen-jo-Daro or the “Mound of the Dead” is situated at distance of 27 kilometers from Larkana on the right bank of the river Indus. It is about 4500 year’s old city. It was discovered in 1922 by Sir John Marshall. It was a city of straight roads, and well-built houses. Covered drains ran beside the streets. There is a great hall where grain was stored. The people of this city were traders because river Indus and sea was so near. The country-side was fertile. The farmers kept cattle; there were skilled craftsmen who worked in gold, silver and ivory. They wore long, loose dresses. Nearby is a museum, where interesting objects found from Moen-jo-Daro, are on exhibition. These include seals, jewellery, toys, weapons, painted pottery and metal tools. The best find of Moen-jo-Daro is the head of a bull, which was used as a seal.
A metal statue of a dancing girl has also been found. We still do not know what happened to them later. Either a great earth quake destroyed them or they were attacked from North. W can know much more about this dead civilization if language experts succeed to decipher the written words on the found objects.
