I seem to recall there being THREE recorded Dawarkas.
There's Krishna's Dwarka, then there's record or rumor, or myth of the rebuilding of Dwarka further inland after Krishna's Dwarka went under the
waves, and then, the 'new' commemorative Dwarka then succumbed to the same fate where then a third Dwarka the one extent, alive, and active today
was laid down in the shadow of and on top of the old.
The second Dwarka may very well be the original Dwarka that just laid claim to the name of a mythological city that never was, and then started
believing its own press.
Or, perhaps, there may be something under the waves, but not necessarily so the recent claims.
There's no adequate survey of the site that might not be a site, and since the dredging (facepalm) has done more to muddy the waters then clear them,
it'll likely be quite a while before any legitimate look is taken or any funds put toward such.
Additionally, academic association with such controversy tends to keep academics at a distance where such controversial associations could equate to
career marginalization and even career death for anyone even thinking about taking a bite of the apple, or extending support for results of such
sloppy poorly executed survey.
