This paper is based on refinding / assessment of the mathematical evolution during ancient civilization of Harappa and Mohenjo-daro during 3500-2500B.C. period. Due to lack of written documentation, any such effort has to have dependence on the relics and remains of any civilization, from the excavated areas. Sources of excavated remains viz civil structures, sanitary system, metalled coins and utensils, the inscription on walls, tablets and alike relics were abundance proof of the concept of mathematics existed at that point of time. Through a scientific analytical observation a trial may be made which would reveal that idea of symmetric geometrical figures as well as numeric operation existed in that civilization in their own way / concept. This paper is an endeavour to assess how mathematical knowledge in Indus Valley Civilization can be considered as initialization of Mathematical evolution.
