Greetings and Salutations:

The early cities of Northern India developed along the Indus and Sarasvati rivers starting around 3500 bc. They are called the Indus-Sarasvati civilization or, sometimes, the Harappan culture. It was the largest and most advanced civilization in the ancient world.

They developed a sewage system, laid out geometrical brick roads, and built multi story buildings. Named after two rivers in India, they were also a maritime society. They exported goods throughout the Middle East and Africa. But the mighty Sarasvati River dried up, and what was once a fertile area became a desert.

The people of the region moved to other parts of India and beyond. By 2000 bc the civilization had entered a period of decline. The Indus-Sarasvati civilization was also responsible for the Vedas, the oldest scriptures in the world. The Vedas contain hymns, incantations, and rituals from ancient India.

Kind Regards,
Jameson
