A Late Harappan Port at Kindar Kheda on the Saurashtra coast
MetadataShow full item record
During onshore exploration along the Saurashtra coast a Protohistoric site at Kindar Kheda was visited and a large number of artefacts were observed within agricultural lands. The potsherds noted here point to this representing a late Harappan settlement. The discovery of a stone anchor from the site, and the study of an ancient map suggests that this site might have served as an active port in past. This port was approachable by boat through creeks from Porbandar and Kindari (Visawada) till A.D. 1856; however, due to geomorphological changes, the creeks are today at distance from Kindar Kheda.
