The Great Bath is one of the best-known structures among the ruins of the ancient Indus Valley Civilization at Mohenjo-daro in Sindh, Pakistan. Archaeological evidence indicates that the Great Bath was built in the 3rd Millennium BC, just sometime after raising of the "citadel" mound on which it is located. The Great Bath of Mohenjodaro is called the "earliest public water tank of the ancient world". The Great Bath measures 11.88 metres x 7.01 metres, and has a maximum depth of 2.43 metres. Two wide staircases, one from the north and one from the south, served as the entry to the structure. A 1 meter wide and 40 centimeters mound is present at end of these stairs. A hole was also found at one end of the Bath which might have been used to drain the water into it.
