    Dwarka, one of the best-studied underwater sites in India, has commanded much attraction, also because the site is considered as one of the four Dhamas (sacred place for pilgrimage) of the Hindu religion. According to ancient Sanskrit literature, the Lord Krishna founded the holy city of Dwarka, which subsequently got submerged under sea.

    Marine archaeological explorations off Dwarka have brought to light a large number of stone structures, which are semicircular, rectangular and square in shape in water depth ranging from inter tidal zone to 6 m. They are randomly scattered over a vast area. Besides these structures, a large number of varieties of stone anchors have been noticed along the structures as well as beyond 6 m water depth.

    These findings suggest that Dwarka was one of the most busy port centers during the past on the west coast of India. The comparative study of surrounding sites indicates that the date of the structures of Dwarka may be between Historical period and late medieval period.

    Mainstream scientists maintain that ancient Indian culture/civilization goes back some 4-5 thousand years. Yet the ruins below the Gulf of Cambay go back at least 9 thousand years, i.e. to the time when the area submerged under water. This means that the city must have existed before the flooding, i.e. at least 9 thousand years ago.

    The explorations conducted in the Gulf of Cambay waters revealed sandstone walls, a grid of streets and some evidence of a sea port 70 feet under water. The ruins have been proclaimed the remains of the legendary lost city of Dwarka which, according to ancient Hindu texts, was the dwelling place of the deity known as Krishna.

    Keep us posted on latest development on the sea claiming part of the land on which Dwaraka was built. It is under sea now. It probably will lay to rest theory of Max Muller and other British paid anti Indian mythologist who belive that Mahabharata battle happened in 1600BCE.

    How much serious are we and our government is in exploring this city? This may open a new chapter and disclose some new evidence of living in old era.

    Lots of Relics and artefacts can be found if searched thoroughly.

    Even gold can be found as the people of dwarka did not got sufficient time to vacate the city.

    It was found many years ago, thanks to satellite imageries. Does it remain MYTHOLOGICAL even now?

    Need to remove Marxist blinkers.

    There was a nice documentary on this from way back in 1999. Further excavation was stopped due to the Kargil war, and researchers were asked to stay away. I wonder if there is any news on it now.

    It's not just around that area. The whole coast around India has many of these submerged sites. This, it is said, is due to the coast being further away from the current locations (lost coastline due to ocean coming in). There is even a local legend about the Mahabalipuram temple that there are 6 more like it, and the lie beneath the ocean and in sometime even the last remaining 7th one will be submerged. (see here Seven Pagodas of Mahabalipuram - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia , apparently they've found some evidence since the tsunami)

    Edit: Here is the documentary
