Do you know about Mohenjodaro? It was an ancient Indian city that thrived from 2700 B.C.E to 1900 B.C.E the city was located next to the Indus river. Today it is located between Pakistan and India.
Their houses are not like ours today. Their houses had no windows so they could keep them selves cool. The houses were also made out of mud bricks too. Their houses have similarity's with ours as well. For example, the wealthier lived in bigger houses than the poor. Finally, most people worked in their own homes.
The Indus people were no lackeys on cleanliness. They had a great bath that they used every day to clean them selves. If they showered at home they would just have a family member or friend pour water on their heads to clean. Most importantly they had their own sewer system to carry away waste.
It is known that Mohenjodaro had seals. The use of these seals are still unclear. Some people think they were used as jewelry or charms to keep away evil sprites. Other evidence points to religious uses. One of the most prominent educated guesses is that they were price tags or tags to mark what is yours. The uses of seals are still unclear.
Religion was very important for the Indus people. they did all kinds of rituals and religious acts. They also believed in a mother goddess, Sakti. They also gave cows great respect because they believed it was a sacred animal. When they bathed they thought they were getting rid of their impurities.
The city of Mohenjodaro was a great city. It had good designed houses and shops. It also had a good religion and bathhouse. It also had the first known sewer system! This is truly a great city.
