He said that numerous construction workers working under the direction of archaeologists had begun the repairs. However, Abbasi failed to assess the cost of the Mohenjo Daro devastation.

However, the deluge has destroyed several of the exterior walls and some of the more enormous walls dividing the many rooms or chambers.
According to Abbasi, Mohenjo Daro’s civilization, also known as the “Mound of the Dead” in the local Sindhi language. It had a sophisticated drainage system that was essential in preventing floods in the past.
