Pandhi Wahi (Mounds), Dadu

The site is located just north of the present-day village of Pandi Wahi, near the Nari Nai. It is 119 meters long, 107 meter wide, 6 meters high and covers an area of 12,733 square meters. A perennial spring which has its head just south of Karkot, up the Nari Nai channel form pandhi wahi, flows into the Nari Nai and passes the site. In addition, several small nais (e.g., sori and chhedagh) converge just north east of Pandhi Wahi. The prehistoric site is stuated on a gravel terrace above the flooding of the terrents but is close enough to take avantage of seasonal sheet flooding and alluvial fan sediments deposited by the streans.

Part of the site has been used as a modern burial ground as well. Some excavations were conducted at the site previously. Trench I revealed that the earliest levels at the site were dominated by the Amri bichrome pottery and that in the top-most levels of the site this bichrome pottery was mixed with a block-on red pottery which is similar to that of the Harappan period. In addition to the pottery finds of terracotta, steatite, stone and lapis lazuli beads, terracotta “cakes” and chert flakes.
