Description

Over five thousand years ago, a highly refined civilization flourished on the banks of the River Indus and its tributaries. Mohenjo Daro, Harappa, Lothal, and Kalibangan were thriving centres of trade,

commerce, and artistic excellence. The discovery of beads made from semi-precious stones like carnelian, jasper, and agate, and exquisitely crafted gold, silver and terracotta ornaments reveal the antiquity of adornment in India.
