History taught us that most of the ancient civilizations got extinct either due to natural calamities or destroyed in wars with each other. Many people believe that the technology that humans possess in the modern world is the advanced one, never created before. Do you think it’s true? Do you really believe that modern human civilization is the advanced one? The world saw its first nuclear bomb in 1945 after it was successfully tested in Alamogordo, New Mexico, United States. Not so long after this, the US dropped its most powerful weapon on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and wiped out almost all the population that lived there.
Was it possible to have such an explosion 4000 years ago? We do not have any videotapes or photographs to prove it, but some researchers believe that the ancient South-Asian city Mohenjo-Daro, aka “Mound of the Dead,” once held the most advanced ancient settlement destroyed by the nuclear explosion. The ancient Indian city (now in Pakistan) was densely populated, situated right on the bank of the Indus river. It was one of the fertile lands where the ancient Indus valley civilization lived.

The city was discovered in the 1920s along with Harappa in British India. The researchers started excavating the site in the 1920s – 1930s, and then in the 1950s and 1960s. It was the first time when the world came to know about the ancient Indian civilization that existed 4000 years ago, competing with the ancient Egyptian civilization.
According to archeologists, the city was well-planned, and houses were built with brick furniture. The most interesting thing was the network of sewer systems found at the site that ran through the center of the streets. Besides, it had manmade brick structures of drinking water for the public.
British researcher David Davenport found out that what had happened in Nagasaki also occurred to Mohenjo-Daro in 2000 BC. He spent over 12 years studying the city, reading ancient texts and any available information about it. He published his research on the city in the book “Atomic Destruction in 2000 BC.”
It is estimated that ancient Mohenjo-Daro was inhabited by 40,000 people, but the numbers could be as big as 100,000. From his research, he cited the mysterious but powerful weapon mentioned in the sacred Hindu text known as Mahabharata. He said the weapon called “Agneya” (Sudārśana), a wheel-like weapon that possessed the power of thunder could be the reason behind this ancient city destruction.
Hindu Utsav writes:
“The Sudarshan Chakra[ Agneya ] is the only divine weapon which is constantly in motion. It could perform millions of rotations every second and has the capability to travel several million yojanas (1 Yojana = 12 km) at the very blink of an eye. It is not thrown, but with willpower, it is sent against the enemy.”
The ruins of the city helped Davenport suggesting that Mohenjo-Daro was turned into ashes by the advanced weapons in the past. He found several objects at the site that were heated up to 1500 degrees Celcius. He also found the epicenter of the explosion, where the land and bricks in the 50 yards were fused, crystallized, and melted. All this evidence showed that a powerful blast happened in the area that could be compared to modern atomic bombs.
In 1966, British author Alexander Gorbovsky reported in his book “Riddles of Ancient History” about the skeleton found in the area, containing radiation 50 times more than a natural level. Davenport’s claim was also supported by a space engineer in Rome named Antonio Castellani who said that what had happened at Mohenjo Daro was not a natural phenomenon. By the way, there was no volcanic activity in the area.
