Mohenjo-daro Citadel Gateway Southeast

ACC - Citadel Gateway Southeast
Overview of excavated remains of the so-called city wall and gateway at the southeast edge of the citadel mound at Mohenjodaro. This structure was interpreted as a postern gate, with associated rooms and massive fired brick walls. It would have controlled access into the southern area of the citadel. The gateway was later blocked up by the Harappans and structures were filled with pottery and debris to allow for construction of later buildings on top of the wall (see photos 24 and 110).
