Can you shed more light on it please. Never heard about it before.
Lakhan Jo Daro is contemporary with Mohenjo-daro, an urban settlement at 50 ha. Its location near the foot of the Rohri Hills and ca. 150 km from Mohenjo-daro positioned it close to the chert source, easily accessible to the larger center, and contacts in other parts of the Indus civilization. Three major mounded areas have been documented, along with standard Harappan finds and others that are unique. They include a ‘T-shaped tablet, a ritual location and a cluster of large platforms’ (Shaikh 2012).
This site has been sparsely published and is best known based on public presentations. In papers presented at New York University in 2007 and in 2011 by Nilofer Shaikh and Qasid Mallah, they showed ceramics and small finds many of which were identical to the material assemblages that I have worked with at Harappa and on survey. The potential links between Lakhan Jo Daro, Konar Sandal South and Nindowari discussed here are the white spherical stones (shown in Fig. 08) from Lakahan Jo Daro.
Lakhan jo Daro is touted as the second largest city of Indus valley civilization after Rakhigarhi or Mohenjo daro covering an area of 300 hectares located underneath the modern city of Sukkur and situated just 75 kilometers away from Mohenjo daro itself.Can you shed more light on it please.

thanks. Will go thru this post in detail later todayLakhan jo Daro is touted as the second largest city of Indus valley civilization after Rakhigarhi or Mohenjo daro covering an area of 300 hectares located underneath the modern city of Sukkur and situated just 75 kilometers away from Mohenjo daro itself.
Despite being one of the major cities of the IVC, the site has not been well known to the scholarly circle and to the public, while smaller sites like Ganweriwala (40–80 Ha) are rather much more well known, probably because the site wasn’t idenified until 1985 and its extend wasn’t measured until recent archaeological survey and analysis. The site was brought to attention by imminent archaeologist Dr Kenoyer in his October 2020 lecture on Indus valley civilization where he clearly placed the site as one of the major sites of the Indus valley civilization,
