Lower Town, Lothal

The archaeological remains of the 4000 year old town of Lothal has many interesting structures spread around. The entire area is divided into two primary zones – the upper and the lower town. 



The lower town contained commercial as well as residential area. The arterial streets running from north to south were flanked by rows of shops, residential dwellings and artisan's workshops. 



There are multiple two-roomed shops and workplaces of copper-smiths and blacksmiths.



The remains of the lower town suggest that the area had a bead-making factory. The factory comprised 11 rooms, which included worker's quarters, warehouse and guard rooms, surrounding a courtyard.
