Ancient Times

In Ancient times, there were two civilizations on the Indian Subcontinent; Harappa and Mohenjo-Dara. Mohenjo-Dara had a fortress that was built on a brick platform to keep guard of residents. Residents built granaries to keep store of food for the entire city population. In Harappa, most of the animals they had were sheep, goats, and cattle. Harappa also had a very protective wall to surround the city which was known as a citadel. Harappa is in modern day Pakistan.

Traveler Tips

-A sick stomach is pretty common for first-timers in India. People just aren't used to the food there. Stay on bottled water (India's purification system isn't great).

-Carrying huge quantities of cash isn’t a good idea anywhere, but in crowded crowded places like India, pickpocketing is a very big problem.

-Your best chances of spotting a tiger are in the national parks of Rajasthan, but there places all over India where you can track down cool wildlife like lions, wild asses, rhinos, and wild elephants

-It's very crowded so expect noise
