What an amazing find - thanks for taking the time to upload pictures. It's tough to tell what exactly we are looking at, engravings of some sort - an old sunken temple perhaps? Everything looks like it's in really good condition.

Can't wait to see what experts can decipher from these

I don't believe that this is the first time the carvings have been seen.
The place is the site of a pilgrimage where Shiva (I think) is worshiped.
Plus, someone had to carve the Shiva Lingam, and I doubt they did it underwater.

In my opinion, it's a Shiva Lingam - the symbol for Lord Shiva, here's a sculpture from India below. It's a phallus representing the reproduction in nature.
