I also visited Dholavira recently (June,2013),but my opinion is totally different from what is being said.It is a necropolis and not a citadel as being portrayed. Detailed justification can be seen under the web-page, "Dholavira - Bhoot Pradesh",in my website,"https://sites.google.com/site/induscivilizationsite/home/dholovera---photos---Jeyakumar Ramasami

Very interesting and wonderful pictures.
I wonder the role of Aryans in the desruction of these Harappan cities? In Rigveda and other literature, Indra is decpicted as PURANDHARA (destroyer of forts). Is it possible to relate to the invasion of Central Asian Nomads and destruction of these mature and settled Harappan Cities?
