Harappan Civilization or Indus Valley Civilization has its earliest roots in cultures such as that of Mehrgarh, approximately 6000 BCE. The two greatest cities, Mohenjo-daro and Harappa, emerged around 2600 BCE along the Indus River valley in Punjab and Sindh. Harappan Civilization was contemporary with ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia and surpassed them as a civilized society in many respects.
