Weekly Photo Challenge: Lothal – Delicate Architecture – I


Delicate – Very fine in texture or structure; of intricate workmanship or quality.

Lothal is one of the most prominent cities of the ancient Indus valley civilization; we were taught in social studies subject in school days!!!

Lothal (a mishmash of Loth and (s) thal) – “the mound of the dead”

After the core of the Indus civilization had perished in Mohenjo-daro and Harappa, Lothal seems not only to have survived, but to have thrived for several years.

Once a sleepy pottery village, Lothal rumbled awake to become a flourishing centre of trade and industry, famous for its expertly constructed system of underground sanitary drainage, and an astonishing precision of standardized weights and measures.

That is the reason I dare to say, “It is a Delicate Architecture”!!!
