Slides of the mounds in Harappa and other archaeological sites in the Indus Valley by Omar Khan
A small fraction of Harappa has actually been excavated. Most of the site is untouched by the archaeologists tools. It may be that future non-invasive techniques like ground penetrating radar help us map out what remains under the soil.
In the distance, the modern town of Harappa survives on another set of mounds. During ancient times they were separated from Mound AB in the foreground by a river channel.
This area in Mound AB, excavated in the 1920's revealed large houses thought to have belonged to upper class members of ancient Indus society.
These giant ringstones are similar to ones found in Mohenjo-daro and Dholavira. Local legend claims they were the rings of a giant 17th century saint (Baba Nur Shah) who is buried on Mound AB.
