Moen Jo dare or Mohan Jo Daro, is the site of the great Indus civilization which flourished as the earliest Urban culture in 3000 - 1700 BC. Known as Harrappan Culture. We have a large No. of detailed sites well laid by the expert archeologists. Indus civilization was probably the most advanced urban culture in the past , From the sites we can see the complete planning of the city, a separate area for Administration/ state, a rich residential area, Industrial area and an area for poor or workers. All the streets present an excellent grid system and were maintained with covered drainage , Dustbins and Market places. It is also proved that they had binary system of weights.

The state was very strict. We don't see any difference in weights found from different sites. Taxes were collected in form of wheat, Barley 0r same, and mud pots were sealed to prove the clearance of dues. The used a language with 300 Different semi pictographic characters, which are not read yet. Further details can be read or had from us at any time.

Moen Jo Daro is declared as Unesco World Heritage Site and is being mutually taken care of by Government of Sindh and UNESCO.

A tour of Moen Jo Daro can be done in a half day but since the flight timings are such that we have to spend 2 or more days. Current flight schedule is only 3 flights a week to Mon jo Daro. The best option is to fly to Sukkur and than take a car to Moen Jo Daro and and return in the evening to take flight back to Karachi.

In a good visit of Moen Jo Daro We start with DK area which is also shown on 10 Rupees note. It is an administrative area. We shall see the stupa of 2nd Century Ad which was built by Buddhist much later than the site it self; we then see Assembly hall, drainage, wells, state granary where taxes were collected, streets and the great bath. Then we visit the DK area which is main citadel or rich Residential area we shall see the advanced life style of the people of the Indus. We also witness different levels of civilization and the planning of houses street etc.

After the sites we will visit the site museum which has some findings of the site presented in a professional manner one is amazed to see how archeologists can gather bits and pieces to make an objects.

Rest of the day can be spent at the rest house or optionally be spent to see the rest of the sites (VS & HR) or an excursion to Dokri can be organized to witness the Moen Jo Daro of today. Well time has not changed!
