This one juxtaposes images of the Indus Valley and images of current cities,
showing how the Indus Valley civilization may have contributed to the way we live life today

Video: Pre-Harappan Ancient City Found   Part 2   Part 3   Part 4   Part 5
One of the best documentaries I've seen on Kumari Kandam and the Indus Valley Civilization
It is in five parts--definitely worth it to watch all five!



Kumari Kandam 





Video Excerpt: Ancient India and World (History Channel)
Fascinating stuff about Kumari Kandam as well as other sunken sites.
This one suggests aliens had something to do with the lost civilizations.

Video (Part 1): Pre-Harappan Ancient City Found
This link is in the Indus Valley section above, but I wanted it here as well
because some of the info on Kumari Kandam
contradicts info in the above History Channel documentary

The Wikipedia entry has a great list of megalith sites in Asia, Africa,
North and South America, the Middle East, and Europe.

Megaliths Around the World

The Great Sphynx of Pakistan
In some places, they imply that the Pakistani Sphynx is a natural formation.
I highly doubt that.
