Dholavira is the site for one of the biggest archaeological digs for the Harappan civilisation. Located in Khadirbet, Bhachau Taluka, Kutch District, this is a much-visited site because of its interesting finds and the fact that it still seems like it belongs to a bygone era.
The best time to visit Dholavira is between October to February. Being in the Rann of Kutch, temperatures can get high in the summers so travel during this time is best avoided.
