Indus valley is located in the northwestern region of the Indian/Pakistani subcontinent.
Indus valley is in the driest part of the Indian subcontinent. The northern part of Indus valley receives precipitation mostly as snow. January temperatures in the north go below freezing while daytime temperatures in July goes up to 38 degrees Celsius. Indus valley has the same seasons as we do but they also have monsoon rain seasons which is July-September.
The Indus valley civilization followed Hinduism. They had 4 main goddesses. Vishnu was the protector and preserver of life. Siva was the creator and destroyer of life. Shatki was the supreme goddess and Brahma was the creator of the universe. The way they worshiped the goddesses was doing Puja. In that they pray for one of the goddesses to enter their home or temple and then entertaining the deity as a royal guest.

Indus valley civilization used mud bricks to build their homes and buildings. We use tools today that the Indus valley used along time ago,like hammers,knives and axes. This civilization was prominent in hydraulic engineering and sanitation devices which were the first of their kind. Such as system of flush toilets that were connected to a common sewerage pipe. Homes had private wells, and city walls functioned as barriers against floods.

The Indus valley civilization depended on the monsoon season for it's agriculture. Then the monsoons started to decline so they had less water for their agriculture leading to the end of the civilization. Another example of cause and effect is: In winter the civilization collected water from snow in the Hindu Kush or The Himalayas.
