An Indus Valley site has been found on the Oxus River at Shortugai in northern Afghanistan in the Gomal River valley in northwestern Pakistan at Manda, Jammu on the Beas River near Jammu India, and at Alamgirpur on the Hindon River, only 28 km from Delhi. Southern most site of the Indus valley civilisation is Daimabad in Maharashtra. Indus Valley sites have been found most often on rivers, but also on the ancient seacoast, for example, Balakot, and on islands, for example, Dholavira.
