Wow, look how cool! This city is based on a grid pattern.
Hi my name is Landry and I'll be your tour guide today. My job is to show you around cool places and give you important facts about the history and culture. Let's go back to 967 B.C.
The geography of this civilization includes mountains, deserts, and rivers. The Himalayan mountains serve as a natural barrier from invaders and are the tallest mountains in the world. To the west of the mountains is a vast desert. The Indus river is also an important physical feature here because it provides the people with fertile soil and drinking water.
What level of the caste system would you ant to belong to?
Karma is very important to the Hindu religion. Sending good karma to all of you!
One important structure of the civilization is the city of Mohenjo-Daro. It features flat-top roofs which is where entrances to homes are found. Ladders allow people to climb down into their homes. This particular city was built around 2600 B.C.
