I recently have got interested in the Indus Valley Civilisation, and hence would like to visit such sites in India. Apart from the Dholavira, Kanmer, Kuran, what are the other places worth visiting?
 
 
APART FROM ABOVE INDUS PLACES. – EXCAVATION NOT DONE YET SO PLACES YOU CAN NOT REALISE ELSE LIST WAS SENT TO YOU IN THOMAS MAIL.

THERE ARE OVER 100S INDO SARASWATI CIVILISATIONS IN KUTCH , BUT MAINLY 3-4 TO BE VISITED – DHOLAVIRA, KANMER, KURAN, ETC

Also, you said something about taking permission from local police in your reply to Mr. Thomas; do we have to take permission for visiting Dholavira? Also, do we have to take permission in advance?

Khedoi 23.03N – 69.57E
Kotada Bhadli 1 23.22N – 69.26E
Kotada Bhadli 2 23.22N – 69.26E

TO GO DHOLAVIRA PERMISSION IS GRANTED FROM BHUJ DSP POLICE HEADQUATERS http://wikimapia.org/#lat=23.241356&lon=69.6650362&z=17&l=0&m=a&v=2&show=/743317/Supdt-of-Police-Kachchh-Office&search=bhuj – SO IF YOU ARE TRAVELING FROM NAREDI – FIRST NEED TO GO BHUJ FOR PERMISSION LETTER ON THE WAY TO DHOLAWIRA VIA BHUJ AND RAPAR. ELSE NEAREST PLACE TO DHOLAWIAR ARE ANJAR GANDHIDHAM AND RAPAR.
Considering we will be travelling from Mumbai-NareDi-Mumbai, what would be the best route to Dholavira, and the other sites Kanmer, Kuran, etc (that you have mentioned in response to Mr. Thomas’s mail). How far away from each other are they?
 
HOW YOU ARE TRAVELLING ? BY PRIVATE TRANSPORT BEST IS AS YOU ARRIVE FROM BOMBAY FIRST YOU ARRIVE TO BHACHAU AND GANDHIDHAM.(EVEN BY TRAIN OR BUS) SO DHOLAWIRA IS CLOSER FROM THERE BUT YOU NEED TO TAKE PERMISSION LETTER FROM BHUJ SO YOU HAVE TO GO TO BHUJ FIRST.

Would you suggest visiting Bhujjodi, Padhar, Dhaneti, Dhamanka, Lilpur, Anjar, Mandvi, Bhadreshwar? If yes, which would be the best route plan for these villages? Is any prior permission required to visit any of these villages?

MOST NRI DO VISIT BHUJODI NEAR MADHAPR OF BHUJ FOR HANDICRAFT PURCHASE. WORTH VISITING FOR THESE PURPOSE. BHUJODI IS BHUJ 8KM AND MADHAPAR 3KM .
 
THESE DO NOT REQUIRE PERMISSION, BUT WHEN YOU GO TO CLOSE TO BORDER AREA WITH PAKISTAN AND RANN OF KUTCH YOU NEED ONE, AND ALL IN JUST ONE LETTER FROM DSP POLICE HEADQUARTER ONLY, JUST LIKE BLACK HILLS (KALO DUNGAR, KURAN , LAKHPAT KOTESHWAR, SIYOT BUDHA CAVE 1ST CENTURY AD NEAR KATESHWAR  OF LAKHPAT, DHOLAVIRA ETC.) OF KUTCH.
 
 Bhujjodi, (HANDICRAFT) Padhar, Dhaneti, Dhamanka, Lilpur, Anjar, (JESAL TORAL) Mandvi, (BEACH AND JINALAYA) Bhadreshwar?  ANCIENT TEMPLE IS UNDER RENOVATION BUT MOST ANCIENT PLACES THERE ARE
 
 
 
Which are the good museums in Kachchh? Has the the museum in Bhuj reopened for people after it was damaged in the earthquake? How is the museum in Dholavira? What are their timings?
DHOLAVIRA MUSEUM IS ARCHEOLOGICAL NEW MUSEUM AND IS GOOD . OPEN IN DAY TIME DURING VISIT THERE,  MUSEUMS OF KUTCH ABD BHUJ- KUTCH NEWLY BUILD MUSEUM AND IS OPEN NEAR HAMIRSAR LAKE, AINAMAHEL – PRAGMAHEL MUSEUM OF BHUJ DARBAR GADH. AND BHARATIYASANSKRITI MUSEUM OF BHUJ NEAR TOWNHALL OF BHUJ. TIMING YOU MAY CHECK ON THEIR SITES BUT THEY ARE OPEN MORNING AND AFTERNOON TIMES AS WEL AS SAT – SUNDAYS.
  
Also, would you recommend any books on the ‘Indus Valley Civilisation’ and books on ‘Kachchh’, in general?
BOOKS FOR THAT WILL BE AVAILABLE IN BHUJ MUSEUM VISITS AS WELL AS ON INTERNETS. LIKE KUTCH KALA AND KUTCH MUSEUM BOOKS , ALSO VISITS SITES OF DHOLAVIRA ON MANY SITES – AS PANJOKUTCH, ASANJO KUTCH, KUTCH DARSAN, KUTCH SCIENCE, GUJARAT GOVERNMENT TOURISM SITED ETC.
