Utterly surprised to see no guide or interpreter to show us around. After all, what a layman would make out of those 5000 year old dilapilated brick structures? He would either use his own guessing power or rely on the half-baked knowledge of the few...More

A civilization that came up on the river front. The remarkable systems, town planning, waste management and drainage system was truly remarkable. Every student should be made to visit the site and watch the documentary run by the management.

Lothal is about 5000 years old and is a must see place if you like to walk into the past I wish the tourist board had worked out some better facilities and information for the visitors.

Lothal was a small village next to the river providing access to the mainland from the Gulf of Khambhat. The indigenous people maintained a prosperous economy, attested by the discovery of copper objects, beads and semi-precious stones. Ceramic wares were of fine clay and smooth,...More

The site - apart from the museum is open. So it can get very hot - which I presume is the weather post monsoons. If you are prepared for the weather, I do not see a problem.
