The two most well-known structures on the "Citadel" at Mohenjo daro are the "Great Bath" and the "Granary". Ritual bathing may have been carried out at the "Great Bath" as part of rituals for such concerns as a plentiful harvest and peace in society. Crops may have been brought for storage in the "Granary" and later distributed to craftsmen such as potters, jewelers and merchants who resided in the city.
