Dholavira is a recently discovered city of the Indus Valley civilisation, and is now estimated to be one of the five largest (out of 700) Harappan sites, covering an area of up to 100 hectares. Its foundation is dated to around 3000 BC and flourished until approximately 1500 BC(a). 2010 saw the first discovery in Dholivira of an inscription on natural stone in the Indus script. 2011 produced a report(b) that what may be the world’s oldest theatrical stage had been found on the Dholavira site.
The city has number of special features outlined on a Pakistani website in 2015. The same posting(e) suggests that “the Indus Valley civilisation. Ideally it should be called Indus-Saraswsati civilisation, but the work to trace the path of saraswati is still in progress.”
At least two writers have claimed Dholavira as the source of Plato’s Atlantis story. Radek Brychta has already written(d) on the subject of an Atlantean connection, while Yashwant Koak is planning to publish in the near future. One claim is that “the archaeological discoveries at the site of Dholavira matches 90% of the description of the Atlantis city.”
