The Egyptian civilization in the Nile basin, the Mesopotamia civilization between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, and the Chinese civilization in the Hoyangho basin are considered to be the oldest civilizations in the world. But the Indus Civilization was also recognized as the oldest civilization in the world due to the excavations done in 1921 in the Harappan region in present day Pakistan's Punjab. 

The first excavations related to this took place in the Harappa region. Hence it is called Harappan Civilization. It was in this civilization that the first cities were started in the history of India. Physically, the Indus cities have merged over time, but the culture of that time has not ended. It continues to be a part of our cultures even today.
The Indus Civilization had a wider scope than the contemporary world civilizations. It covers about 1.3 million sq km in India. Spread over the area. In this connection, 1400 settlements have been discovered in India and Pakistan. It is known as the Indus Civilization or Indus Valley Civilization because it flourished mainly in the basins of the Indus River and its five tributaries, the Ravi, Beas, Sutlej, Jhelum, and Chenab. The boundaries of this civilization extended from Alanghirpur in the east to Sutkajender in the west, from Manda in the north to Daimabad in the south.
