We took permission from our parents and finally made our destination to Mohenjo Daro. I reached school at 7:00 am and was very excited to see my friends and teachers wearing formal dresses. It was a bright sunny morning. We sat on the bus and made our headway towards our destination. While on the bus, we had some drinks and snacks because we were feeling quite hungry. Making fun on the bus we finally reached the Mohenjo Daro after 10 hours traveling. Because it was evening, so firstly our teachers take us to a hotel for rest and night stay so that we could freshly see the point where we have come from Lahore. As per the plan, we wake up early in the morning and sit into the buss with manners and athics. It was the most ancient site and surprised to see such an old and ancient site in my country. We thoroughly visited this site and our teachers elaborated and explained each and every detailing about this site. Many objects were placed in this site, we saw that dancing girl, the priest-king, Pashupati seal and that ancient necklace. We also took pictures along with those objects.

We also saw a cross-legged seal surrounded by animals, most of the archaeologists have called this seal as Lord of Animals. It was really an amazing scene here which was according to my teachers that it was discovered during the diety of land from this site. And it was more amazing for us that the seal was as same as in its condition as it was 5000 years ago.

It has bronze-metal bead and each and every bead is less than the size of a pepper-seed. I was hoping that they were not as same as they are looking in the same original condition but later that the guide told us, it is its original shape which was built by the original developers.
