Dwaraka Update (1)
Medieval age structure and objects found in Dwarka
The recovery of structural remains of medieval age by underwater wing of Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) off the coast of this pilgrim town has
once again raised hopes of the discovery of Lord Krishna’s legendary city of Dwarka that is reported to have submerged.
The recent off-shore excavation by ASI has revealed a structure of stone blocks with post holes to fit wood. Moreover, the team excavating the area
have found coins, pottery, pieces of bangles and toys.
Alok Tripathi of the ASI said that the excavation near the northern gate of Dwarkadish temple has revealed some structural remains of medieval age.
Officials said that the discovery is an important landmark as it set to rest the doubts expressed by historians about the very existence of the
legendary Dwarka city
To bring to surface Dwarka's past, ASI to dig in deep & in the deeps

Marine archaeological explorations off Dwarka by the NIO have thrown up a large number of randomly scattered stone structures. Semicircular,
rectangular or square in shape, the structures are found at depths ranging inter-tidal zone to 6 m. A number of stone anchors have also been
unearthed, which suggest that Dwarka was once a busy port. A comparative study with surrounding sites indicates that the structures date back to
somewhere between the historical and the late medieval periods.
I guess I will have to try and contact ASI. I will ask Mike Singh to do it as he lives there. A local that speaks the language should get better info
They do have a website
