Harappa.Excavations made in 1955 unearthed an astoundingly well-organized city with acitadel that testifies to its being the finest fortified town in South Asiansubcontinent

 The site is situated at the foot of the Rohri Hills where a fort (Kot Diji Fort) was built around 1790 by Talpur dynasty ruler of Upper Sindh, Mir Suhrab who reigned from 1783 to 1830 AD. This fort built on the ridge of a steep narrow hill is well preserved.
