Dholavira is an archaeological site in Khadirbet in Bhachau Taluka of Kachchh district of Gujarat state in western India, which has taken its name from a modern village 1 km south of it.

The site of Dholavira, locally known as Kotada timba contains ruins of an ancient Harappan city. It is one of the largest and most prominent archaeological sites in India belonging to the Indus Valley Civilization.

It is located on the Khadir bet island in the Kutch Desert Wildlife Sanctuary in Great Rann of Kutch. The site is surrounded by water in the monsoon season.

Dholavira, located near Khadir Bet in the Great Rann of Kachchh of Gujarat, is an incredible example of the Indus Valley civilisation's towns.

The area of the civilisation was larger than that of today's Western Europe. Dholavira perched at one end of it on a small island, possibly surrounded then by the sea.

In a unique geographical location, Dholavira was literally a paradise in the desert.

Archaeologists believe that the 5,000-year-old town must have been a lovely city of lakes in its heyday. In fact, the residents of Dholavira, who had settled in the town between two water streams, Mansar and Manhar, collected their waters in the monsoon and used that for the rest of the year with clever water-storing and -collecting techniques.

The New Delhi-based Centre for Science and Technology believes that ancient Dholavira has a lot to teach the modern water-starved world about water collection, usage and storage.
