Lost and found mysteries of the underwater city DWARKA

Dwarka, like Atlantis, is said to have sunk beneath the sea at some point in the distant past. However, unlike Atlantis, whose remains have never been discovered, remnants of this ancient kingdom could be found in the depths.

The most famous legend about the lost city of Dwarka can be found in the ancient epic of Mahabharata.

According to the sacred scripture of Srimad Bhagavatam, the city of Dwaraka was built in response to Jarasandha, the ruler of Magadha, who was constantly attacking Mathura.

To prevent further attacks on his clan, Lord Krishna decided to establish a separate city on India’s western coast.

Dwarka was built by Lord Krishna and the city quickly rose to prominence, housing thousands in approximately 900 palaces.

As per legends, the city was submerged by the Arabian Sea on the same day that Krishna departed the Earth to join the spiritual world after 125 years, and this is when the Kali age began.

Archaeologists uncovered submerged walls, pottery, sculptures, and artefacts, offering tangible proof of Dwarka's existence beneath the sea.

Presently, Dwarka is well-known for its religious and historical sites, including the Dwarkadheesh temple. Dive deep into the depths to unearth the mystery behind the fabled city and why Dwarka should be on your bucket list.
