Archaeologists have discovered a 9,000-year-old city beneath the surface of modern-day Dwarka
Although many people believe that Ramayana and Mahabharata were merely mythological events and that it didn’t exist, various exploration confirmations demonstrate the hour of an event of such occasions dated back to 5000-7500 years.
There used to be a city called Dwarka, a city so marvelous and majestic that it has been described in Hindu mythology as a fantasy realm.
Nine hundred thousand illustrious palaces, all crafted of precious stone and silver was flaunted by Dwarka and then inanely built by monumental emeralds.
The city was free of flora and fauna. The attractive, liberal, and much admired KRISHNA was to govern this magical world.
“Krishna is a god, and he served the purpose of a mortal being, he fell in love, he played his flute, he defeated evil, he destroyed demons, he gave people good lessons.”
In a grim tussle of greed and ownership of good versus evil, Krishna is called upon one day to help his kin, leading to the battle of Kurukshetra and the origins of the Hindu universe bible, the Mahabharata, one of the most sacred scriptures in India.
Mahabharata also tells us about Krishna and his capital, Dwarka’s golden city, engulfed by the sea and lost to history.
The fishing townhome for 52000 people is Dwarka, established on the west coast of India off the Arabian Sea.
It shares the same name as the historic Hindu mythology defined in the legendary mythical land, but the only link between the two presently is the 1,000 pilgrims who visit here to honor Lord Krishna, the sacramental Deity.
Expeditions off India’s west coast have indeed led to what might be one of the most remarkable discoveries as significant to the Hindus as the discovery of Adam and Eve to the Christian world.
Could the fictionalized story of the life of Krishna be a record of true events and, could the fragments of the mythical kingdom of Dwarka be these extraordinary submerged remains?
“I picked up the task to find out if Dwarka remained,” said Dr. S. R. Rao, one of India’s most prominent archaeologists (he was assigned to the Dwarka two decades ago to inspect this temple).
“We came to eradicate a modern building that stood here because it blocked the temple’s sight” He stumbled upon an unimaginable discovery until what unfolded. He thought a simple digging could be necessary.
“Right beneath the first one, an ancient temple stood. After that, we decided to dig deeper to know if temples were remaining”
Krishna’s tales and his lost city have traditionally been known to be a mythical tale, but a recent archaeological exploration might suggest that under these very buildings exists Krishna’s Dwarka.
What he saw then was reams and reams of temples, one built on top of each other.
Three decades of history in just a Hundred feet of soil but it was below the very last rock which the team came along an incredible achievement, that changed Dr. Rao’s life forever.
The remains of a city swept over by the sea seem to be shells, clay pots, and iron artifacts.
Rao thought of the stories from his childhood immediately.
‘These may be the remains of the town of Dwarka.’
Rao claimed the answers lay in the books of the Mahabharata’s ancient Bhagavad Gita.
In this epic Hindu saga, written in the ancient language of Sanskrit, Krishna’s Dwarka is just one story; the Mahabharata is the world’s longest and most sacred poem.
Krishna’s tale ends with his kingdom, with the town of Dwarka disappearing into the ocean. So Rao started heading toward the shore.
But it would turn to be a struggle to pursue a lost city at sea. Where to look for this drowned city of Dwarka was just another question. Rao began to look arbitrarily for places adjacent to the coast of present-day Dwarka. It tended to be challenging at first then he anticipated.
Divers were grappling with the intense tides of the sea of Arabia and the muddy waters. But his persistence eventually paid off. Rao and divers stumbled across an even greater exploration than he had predicted, not too far from the coast to the present-day Dwarka.

The traces of what appeared to be the underwater city laid Seventy feet beneath the waters. Huge blocks of sandstone walls with strewn rocks, drainage, and an enormous entrance, all heading to a large metropolis.
A thriving terminal implied thousands of three-holed anchors similar to those found at about the same time in Cyprus and Syria.
Rao pursued the relics’ path to an island 19 miles offshore. It was here that Rao came across such discovery not too far from modern civilization. The ruins of a walled structure have also been lying in plain sight for decades.
“We had seen what’s on the coastline and it was this small part of the larger emplacement and we came across a certain 550-meter large corridor as we traveled deeper inland.”
Rao’s achievements became a quest through survival. His discoveries unearthed the existence of a sprawling town of around 10,000 inhabitants over the next 8 years.
