The American Institute of Sindhulogy (AIS) is dedicated to building a better world by promoting the values of inclusion, nonviolence and democracy first embraced by the ancient Harappan, Sindhu (Indus)-Saraswati, Ganga and Yamuna Civilizations over 5,000 years ago.

Recently Discovered Ancient Civilization More Advanced than Modern Day

The ancient Sindhu (Indus Valley) Civilization was rediscovered less than 100 years ago when archeologists excavated at Mohenjo-daro in Sindh and Harappa in west Punjab.  Up until the early 1920s, we knew nothing about one of the worlds oldest urban cultures and first democracy.

At its peak about 4,500 years ago over 5 million people lived in a Texas-size federation of 2,000 settlements and cities covering northwest India, Pakistan and south Afghanistan. 

Ruled by democratically selected leaders, the ancient Harappans practiced religious tolerance, protection of the environment, sexual equality and nonviolence.

Its remarkable to realize that one of the most divided regions in the world today was once the cradle of its first and largest peace loving civilization. There are popular dress can be found


If ancients achieved all that, just imagine what we can do today!

Help us retell their story and learn from their remarkable example.
