Website on Mohenjo Daro to be launched next month
KARACHI: Mohen jo Daro will become the country’s first archaeological site to have its own website, Sindh Culture Minister Syed Sardar Shah said.
While presiding over a meeting of the executive board of the National Fund for Moenjodaro (NFM) at his office, the minister said the website was in its final stages and would be launched in February on the eve of an international conference on Moenjodaro and the Indus Valley Civilisation.
He underlined that a research and resource institute was also being formed and its construction work would soon be completed.
He said the institute would serve as a major resource centre on Mohenjo Daro, accumulating diverse research done on the internationally acclaimed archaeological site.
The meeting was told that Unesco had recommended two international experts to the technical committee of the NFM for dry core drilling at Moenjodaro.
