It was on the fertile plains. It was one of the oldest civilizations,with religious practices starting at 5500 BCE. Decline for this city started in 1800 BCE, but reasons for this decline were unknown.

Ancient india also had a problem with monsoons. Most of the year, india was very dry, dust would blow. But in one part of the year, which started at around may, the weather suddenly got very humid and muggy. The civilizations civilians knew what was happening, and were waiting for it to come. It would suddenly rain. Bringing buckets apon buckets of water.

But this also caused the indian ocean to rise, and cause terrible floods.These floods would kill civilians and destroy buildings. You would think this would change people’s thoughts about living there, but it made for great farmland, and kept people coming.The Climate depends on the season.
