Moen Jo Daro / Sindh

Moen Jo Daro: Model of Non-violence According To National Geographic Magazine

The Indus River Valley civilization, which built the city of Mohenjo Daro (shown here), arose in what is now Pakistan about 4,500 years ago. Mohen Jo Daro and its sister city, Harappa, each had some 40,000 residents at their peak in 2500 B.C.

Amazingly, the Indus Valley civilization appears to have been a peaceful one. Very few weapons have been found and no evidence of an army has been discovered. See Reference.
