The little village of Utelia is the archetypal hamlet of the Indian countryside.

Sun browned children run to greet you and tiled roofs sit cheek to jowl except near the Palace where they fall back and keep respectable distance.

Utelia is also the best possible base from which to explore the excavations of the 4,500 year old city of the Indus Valley Civilization.

The site has been named ‘Lothal’ and reveals the foundation of an extremely well planned city with public baths, a sophisticated drainage system and even a dock that welcomed sea faring ships.
