9th Planned Cities

  1. 1. Geography of the Indian Subcontinent PLANNED CITITES ON THE INDUS
  2. 2. Well, that geographers refer to the landmass that includes India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh as the INDIAN SUBCONTINENT What do you mean by that???
  3. 3. The moun-tains guard an enormous flat and fertile plain formed by two rivers the Indus and the Ganges INDUS RIVER GANGES RIVER
  4. 4. The Indus and Ganges and the lands they water make up a large area that stretches 1,700 miles across northern India and is called the Indo-Gangetic Plain. Like the Tigris, the Euphrates, and the Nile, these rivers carry not only water for irrigation, but also silt(sand or clay), which produces rich land for agriculture.
  5. 5. PLANNED CITIES
  6. 6. •Egyptian Pyramids •Indus: Were laying the bricks for the first cities. Indus Valley: Built strong levees, or earthen walls, to keep water out of their cities. When these were not enough, they constructed human-made islands to raise the cities above possi ble floodwaters
  7. 7. HARAPPANS CULTURE
  8. 8. Harappan culture spread throughout the Indus valley. Like the Egyptian and Mesopotamian civilizations you have studied, the culture was based on agriculture. Artifacts help to explain some aspects of the culture. Language Like the other two river valley civilizations, the Harappan culture developed a written language. •Cuneiform •Hieroglyphics
  9. 9. Some cities along the rivers apparently suf-fered through these disasters and survived. Others were destroyed.
