The Indus Valley Civilization was a Bronze Age Civilization (3300-1300 B.C.) extending from what today is northeast Afghanistan to Pakistan and northwest India. Mohenjo-Daro (which means 'Mound of the Dead') is an archaeological site in the province of Sindh, Pakistan. Built around 2600 B.C., it was one of the largest settlements of the ancient Indus Valley Civilization. The ruins of the city remained undocumented for over 3,700 years, until their discovery in 1922 by Rakhaldas Banerji, an officer of the Archaeological Survey of India. He was led to the mound by a Buddhist monk, who reportedly believed it to be a stupa.
