Lothal (IPA): was one of the southernmost cities of the ancient Indus Valley Civilization,[1] located in the Bhāl region of the modern state of Gujarāt and first inhabited c. 3700 BCE.[2] Discovered in 1954, Lothal was excavated from 13 February 1955 to 19 May 1960 by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI), the official Indian government agency for the preservation of ancient monuments. According to the ASI, Lothal had the world's earliest known dock, which connected the city to an ancient course of the Sabarmati river on the trade route between Harappan cities in Sindh and the peninsula of Saurashtra when the surrounding Kutch desert of today was a part of the Arabian Sea. However, this interpretation has been challenged by other archaeologists, who argue that Lothal was a comparatively small town, and that the "dock" was actually an irrigation tank.[3] The controversy was finally settled when scientists from The National Institute of Oceonography, Goa discovered foraminifera (marine microfossils) and salt, gypsum crystals in the rectangular structure clearly indicating that sea water once filled the structure.[4] Lothal was a vital and thriving trade centre in ancient times, with its trade of beads, gems and valuable ornaments reaching the far corners of West Asia and Africa. The techniques and tools they pioneered for bead-making and in metallurgy have stood the test of time for over 4000 years.[5] Lothal is situated near the village of Saragwala in the Dholka Taluka of Ahmedabad district. It is six kilometres south-east of the Lothal-Bhurkhi railway station on the Ahmedabad-Bhavnagar railway line. It is also connected by all-weather roads to the cities of Ahmedabad (85 km/53 mi), Bhavnagar, Rajkot and Dholka. The nearest cities are Dholka and Bagodara. Resuming excavation in 1961, archaeologists unearthed trenches sunk on the northern, eastern and western flanks of the mound, bringing to light the inlet channels and nullah ("ravine", or "gully") connecting the dock with the river. The findings consist of a mound, a township, a marketplace, and the dock. Adjacent to the excavated areas stands the Archaeological Museum, where some of the most prominent collections of Indus-era antiquities in India are displayed. The Lothal site has been nominated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and its application is pending on the tentative list of UNESCO.[6]

Lothal is believed to be 3,700 years old and is the only major port-town of the IVC, discovered so far. Remarkably, Lothal is home to what is believed to be one of the oldest docks in the world. First discovered in 1954, Lothal was excavated from 1955-1960 by S R Rao of the Archaeological Survey of India. Interestingly, the name ‘Lothal’ comes from the local name of the place, roughly translated to ‘Mound of the Dead’ in Gujarati; Mohenjo-daro, 670 km from Lothal, means the same in Sindhi. The site itself is small, at 7 hectares, and is 18 times smaller than Mohenjo-daro. It displays many of the features that make the Harappan Civilization distinct, like the division of the town into two sections – the Upper Town and Lower Town – and advanced town planning. What really sets Lothal apart is its dock. At the northern end of the town is a basin with a vertical wall, an inlet and outlet channels. This has been identified as a ‘tidal dockyard’. The basin exhibits a remarkable knowledge of hydraulics and tides, which further supports the assumption that this was a dock and not an irrigation tank, as some archaeologists contend. Archaeologists have also identified the remains of stone anchors, marine shells and seals, which can be traced to the Persian Gulf. These, along with a structure identified as a warehouse, strongly suggest that Lothal was a port with a dock. DidYouKnow: Lothal is one of the many sites in Gujarat. During the exploration in 1950s by the Archaeological Survey of India, many sites were found strewn across Delhi, Rajasthan, Haryana and Gujarat, and 50 of them were concentrated in Gujarat alone! #worldheritage #indiantourism

Compared to many other museums, the archaeological museum at Lothal is far better one, but can be lot better. The entry fee is very nominal. Given the archaeological importance of the site, especially for international archaeology & Indian history, the museum is a disappointment. The different objects obtained are categorised into groups based on the possibility of their use in the Harappan culture. For ex, the ritual objects are all grouped together. This consists of terracotta spoons, ladles, & terracotta cakes. The toys excavated at Lothal form an impressive set. There are terracotta tops, toy carts pulled by animals and a set of terracotta games pieces which “simulate modern chess pieces”. The weight measures which form an important aspect of Lothal have been displayed with explanations. It informs us that there were three series of weights: the first one meant for weighing lighter articles and the second for measuring heavier objects and the third for weighing system. The uniformity and accuracy of stone weights of the first two series and gold discs of the third series are remarkable for the age. There is a multimedia room in the museum. The person in charge is courteous. There are shows about Harappan culture in English & Hindi. The show is good albeit monotonous. It can be made more detailed & exciting.

Very good place to visit in ahmedabad .... Fairly 70 km frim centre of ahmedabad .... The road to lothal is also great .... The site shows how good our culture and how smart and intelligent the people of indus valley civilization was at that time .... The structure build before nearly 5000 yr is steel in great condition ... That shows how good they know to build.... The museum is also good ... But the government should pay some attention towards this site .... There were no boards to show the detail of site .... Like what was the structure.... For what it was being used ... The ornaments and other important items stored in museum was not properly stored .... Some things have been fallen from wall in broken condition ... The stones and ornaments were hanged on wall with double side gum tape.... Looks like government is not interested in preserving the Archaeological site of indus valley civilization...

  • Abhiram Haridas

I didn't really enjoy it. The place is quite far away from the main roads. So considerable time is spent to get there. The place was completely barren (on 27/11/2018) unlike a few older pictures in the reviews. I'm not sure if it's because of the season. The good thing is that it's only 5 bucks per adult for the museum. But unless you're are really into history or archaeology, it should be done in around 15 minutes. The ruins of the site can be seen, but I'm surprised at the lack of effort from authorities to promote the location. It looked deserted and unmaintained.


Lothal.... Lothal is believed to be 3,700 years old... It's an archeological site and museum about Harrapan Civilization.... People who are interested in History should visit it at least once. Excellent display boards with all the information. Video guide presentation is also available in Hindi and English language.. School kids must visit it. Facility of food is not available nearby. You have to carry your food and water. Fee is very nominal.

The staff members are extemely generous and genuinely good people. Because i was travelling alone in public transport from Ahmedabad, a psycho guy started following me, i approached a bhaiya on duty and narrated the incident. After which he kept a guide and watchman with me all the time. Invited me to have lunch with them (ghar ka khana..which i had after a long time)He also took the responsibility to make sure i reach home safely. He personally gave me a ride on his bike and dropped me in st bus. I am very thankful to each and everyone of them.

  • Rajeshsinh Prajapati

Best Archeological Site, explains the history of Gujarat and the culture, tradition cum life style of that era of Indus Valley Civilization. Their town planning and plotting and drainage system with water supply management are the most important. Here in Lothal museum the government has nicely covered in showcase all the weapons, instruments, ornaments and daily routine things which were used by that time people. The video they show is also giving idea about the place and its history. Must visit place.

  • Astha Bishnoi

History is always good to know about our ancients. Lothal is a place where you can see our ancient indus valley civilisation. Lothal is an Archeological survey site. Many remains you can see in lothal museum. I am recommending to family, couples and kids to see this museum museum to get the knowledge of our ancient civilisations. Must visit place if you are going to rajkot from Ahmedabad. You will feel proud when you will see the remains of drainage system and other remains of harappan civilization.

  • kunal patel

Totla disappointment, if you are someone looking to visit archeological site then this is not for you. It Has a small museum and that too audiovisual tour is out of service due to technical reasons The actual site is located besides the museum but heavy modified, it seems that the remains which mostly contained bricks were replaced with moderns construction materials if you are some one who is traveling visiting 400 plus km then just drop the idea it itsnt worth time and money involved.

  • Ankit Limbachiya

People who are interested in History should visit this place and also school children's. Well maintained Museum with Video Guide presentation is available here. Entry tickets are only 5 rupees and Car Parking is free of cost. Photography is allowed all around the place, but you can't take the selfie inside the museum. If kids are travelling with you then it's better to carry food items since there is no canteen/Restaurant facility available here.

  • Rashmit Pankhania

Lothal. A place so important and beautiful in history. The museum is closed for renovation, should take at least a year as per local guards. The site is still open to visit Very deep inside village, you should probably brought your own vehicle or hire one A guide would make this even important by making people understand what the artefact or the scriptures are It should be long journey, you’ll also get to see green and beautiful farms as well

  • Lalithambigai Arumugasamy

Some historic artifacts are there in the museum, it is an interesting place, but more information & details about the Harapan civilization would have made the trip worth the detour we had to take. More details about which parts of the excavated site are actually old & whatever parts of the site have been reconstructed (there is a good amount of brick walls with present day marks), would have made the visit more interesting.

  • Ashok Kumar

If you have interest in history than this is the must visit place. You can see the old civilisation remains. However museum is closed currently due to building collapsed partially. Also they should have some guide / provide map picture to better understand the remains. You will know that engineering and proper construction was here before 4000year ago also. You will make you think over it and it’s really interesting.Thanks

  • Sunil Thummala

Around 6000 y/o human history. Every human should see this to appreciate how our ancestors lived and flourished. Very good place for children and adults alike. Go as a group from Vadodara or Ahmedabad. We went in a van, many other groups came in buses and cars. There is museum on site as well. Fee is 5 rupee. Restroom and water is available on site. They need resources to develop site further.

  • vikas Chander Singh

Visited Lothal on 23/1/2023 this location is very very close to our emotions for our ancient Harappan Civilization ... This location is reviving itself to make India as India's Industrial Hub in a new shape till year 2047 in form of Dholera SIR (Special Investment Region ) which is 36 Kms away from Lothal , Dholera SIR is an area which is developed by Govt of India and Govt of Gujarat .

  • Sachin Kshirsagar

AMAzing collection of Badal pan civilization. The film that they show is a must see, before a visit to the place i.e. the site of Lothal. If u see the place first and then the film, it's of no use...As you will not be able to guess anything while you visit the Lothal site. But still, the site needs to be more informative and guides should be provided. It is not at all self explanatory.

  • Akash Suresh - DropGear

PHOTOGRAPHY WAS PROHIBITED HERE . I somehow requested the incharge official there and which his permission I managed to take some good pictures inside the museum. Lothal Museum is a popular museum in western India. It is based in Gujarat and has been established for displaying various artifacts of Indus valley civilization that include jewellery, toys, measures and weighs ...

  • Lokket99

Very very far away from the main city limited transportation to the world first ship building yard the entrance fee is Rs.5 . All in all if your a history student you can visit this place but have your own transport unless you want to be exploited by the auto drivers . Have money as there is no bank or ATM near by also bring along a umbrella and a bottle of water .

  • harshad patel

Huge disappointment as it was closed. No it’s not because of pandemic but museum building structure is shaken/broken. Person over there said do not come for year or two as still there is no tender to repair issues and don’t know when building will be repaired. Just can’t believe this — it’s treasure we have and government is taking care like liability.

  • Sandeep Gangolli

Please visit this museum before venturing onto the Lothal site. The exhibits are of items discovered during excavation, which include jewelry items made of semiprecious material, pottery, copper and bronze items (like needles, fish hooks, etc.), Seals and sealings, weights, board games, dice, etc. Very neatly labeled and exhibited.

  • Bhupesh Gupta
