Features of urban planning in Harappan civilization.

Each city was divided into two parts- the raised area called the Citadel and ‘lower town’.

The main streets followed a grid pattern runing from north to south or from east to west.

The houses at street corners were rounded to allow carts to pass easily.

House drains emptied all waste water into the street drains.

The streets crossed the main road at right angels, dividing the city into square or rectangolar blocks.
