Historical heritage sites are present everywhere in the world and are constantly maintained and repaired by governments. Many famous historical sites exist in different areas of Balochistan but these are neglected. Additionally, Makran is one of the oldest parts of the Indus Valley civilisations. Mirri Fort, Damb Shahi Tump in Turbat dates back to 4000 BC. These ancient centres belong to the pre-Harrapan period of the Indus Valley civilisation.

However, no concrete steps have been taken to unearth the history and culture of these ancient sites. Unfortunately, neither the government nor any NGO has taken any serious action for the preservation of these ancient sites. On the other hand, the local people of these areas dig around there in search of hidden treasures and destroy these historical sites. The authorities concerned should take serious action to preserve these ancient archaeological sites.
