The city is also known for its fruit production, particularly pears and apples. The region's high altitude gives it a cool temperate climate year-round. Gilgit was an important town of the Indus Valley Civilization, being one of the main centres of their civilization along with Harappa and Mohenjo Daro in Sindh, Pakistan; Mehrgarh in Balochistan; and Rakhigarhi near Haryana/Punjab border India. This ancient civilisation had well-planned towns with houses built on a grid pattern as seen from above (see layout plan). The ruins of their ancient cities can be found in the surrounding mountains including Gilgit–Baltistan region which are part today to modern state boundaries between Pakistan and India or China respectively.
