Situated at a distance of 80 km from Ahmedabad, Lothal is one of the most important archaeological sites in India. In the dialect of the local people's language, Lothal means "the mound of the dead". The site was discovered in the year 1957, followed by excavations done by the Archaeological Survey of India. It was concluded from the excavations that the ruins of the settlement belonged to the Harappan Era, dating back to the 2nd millennium BC. It is an exquisite example of Harrappan town planning. One of the most interesting sites here is the dockyard, which reveals the fact that Lothal was once one of the major ports in the region.
