Sothi, near Baraut, is an early Indus Valley Civilization archeological site on the Chautang (Sarasvati) seasonal river in Bagpat district of Uttar Pradesh |India.[1]


The ceramic ware termed Sothi may feature painted pipal leaf or fish scale designs. External ribbing and external cord impressions are also typical of Sothi ceramics, as are ceramic toy cart wheels and the short-stemmed dish on a stand. Sothi ware is present at almost all the Harappa sites in the Sarasvati valley. (The culture represented by Sothi ware is now called Kalibangan I, and mature Harappan is designated Kalibangan II.)
