Hmm...interesting, the city looks almost like how a shopping district is set up, this will give more credibility to the Hindu stories about Krishna, at least this is proof of a very old tradition.

...Such notions are, of course, vehemently rejected by establishment scientists though they are willing to concede that there is evidence indicating an age of as much as 3500 years.


Furthermore, why is it so important that the truth never be discussed?

Sometimes its the political BS within a nation that prevents such discussions or expeditions with attitude being we know we are intellingent so why spend money on the dead or past. Many times its the case of corruption where the funding for such programs and studies is simply divided amongst the corrupted individuals. I'm sure there is a lot of history to be uncovered throughout the world and a lot remains to be documented before we get a brief handle around the entire human race and the multiple branches of civilizations that sprung out from the past.

However the above is definitely a good find for the Indian Archaeological Team (if they are affiliated in anyway).

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

Thanks, thats great. I wonder why more information hasn't been let out since then?

Just a note, they said "remains of medieval age". Do they mean that they are dated to the medieval period? That would indicate that this city is much younger then Dwarka. As far as I know Dwarka was an ancient city that 'sank' when the epics were written. If people were still inhabiting this city in the medieval period then it can't be Dwarka.

Does that date not crop up in Atlantis theories and The Giza Pyramid date used by non main stream thought?
Odd that huh?


Agreed. With all of these really old sites appearing to be from the same time is seems to me that the world was much different then what we think. I also think that it is interesting these site are still here. After watching a few episodes of "Life after people" on the discovery channel, I've learned that most of the structures we have will not last more than a few hundred years. These people made cities that survived much longer, in this case even underwater. Imagine how long a modern city would last submerged in saltwater. Did these peoples have the foresight to use solid rock to build or was it just simply what they had and got lucky.


Perhaps in ten thousand yrs - Archeologists of the time will be re-discovering stonehenge and the pyramids and wondering who built them after all traces of our scyscrapers and motorways have crumbled to dust and rust.
