Mohenjo-Daro means ýMound of the Deadţ. Mohenjo-Daro is a famous ancient city in the Indus River Valley civilization. We know much about this city because many artifacts have been found. Once as many as 40,000 people lived there.
We know that Mohenjo-Daro had a strong government because they had paved streets and man made holes which served as the town sewer system. Lining the streets were workshops. That showed that the people were skilled craftsmen and workers.
Some of the artifacts that were found included: stone seals, water jars, cooking bowls, colorful painting on and off jars and containers, copper fish hooks, razors, statues of people cast in bronze, bead necklaces, and what is the first ever woven cloth from cotton.
Mohenjo-DaroÝs citadel is the only citadel with a city hall. It is a large room on top of the citadel that overlooks the city. In
Mohenjo-Daro there was also a religious bath that they would use for ceremonies.
