#5 – Mohenjo-daro, Sindh, Pakistan
Highest Recorded Temperature: 128.3° F
Mohenjo-daro is an archaeological site located in the Sindh province in Pakistan. Mohenjo-daro was designated as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1980, but it is currently threatened by erosion and improper restoration. Some estimates state that the site may disappear by 2030, if conservation efforts are not improved. Literally, Mohnejo-daro means “Mound of the Dead.” This name seems fitting with the highest recorded temperature of 128.3° F occurring on May 26, 2010.
