Rupnagar/ropar , Punjab

Rupnagar is more commonly known as Ropar. The Bhakra Dam in Nangal lies on the boundary with the neighbouring state of Himachal Pradesh. This is one of the foremost Dams in the country and changed lives of many people. This place lies in Punjab and is today a very important place to visit as it has yielded findings that point to this place being one of the main cities of the Indus Valley Civilization. There are some tremendous findings that have come to light in this place and they will awe you by the information that it will give about the fames yet mysterious Indus Valley Civilization. Findings include a steatite seal with Indus script probably used for trading goods, impressions of seals on a terracotta lump of burnt clay, chert blades, copper implements, terracotta beads and bangles and typical standardised pottery of the Indus Valley civilization. They all point to a rather established and advanced way of living. Houses were built to suit climatic conditions. Walls were plastered with water repelling sticky clay. This was no ordinary people trying to survive. This was a society that existed some 5000 years ago. In fact Rupnagar shows the different phases of the civilization where the simplicity of the society becomes more complicated when the statuses and the hierarchy of the society is established. This is a place that will stun you with the findings and seeing in right in front of your eyes makes them very real. This place was the witness to the entire civilization- one of the first in the whole world and should definitely be visited to understand the worth of it all.
