A few years ago there were talks of a new discovery that shocked everyone involved. A 9,500-year-old city was discovered and according to most iterations, it was the ancient lost city of Dwarka.
Commonly referred to as the “Golden City”, it was a place of worship for the Hindu god Krishna before it was flooded.
The discovery was officially made back in 2002 when experts mapped the Gulf of Cambay and found different structures at the bottom of the sea around 130 meters deep.
What appeared to be stairs and even temples soon emerged on the radars which prompted them to check it out personally.
Excavations were already taking place since 1983 off the coast of Dwarka and at the Dwarka port in Gujarat, and according to the experts, all signs pointed towards it being a place of worship for the god Krishna.
Most legends speak of the 6 submerging of Dwarka, which would make this the 7th reconstruction of the city that we’ve uncovered.
The wood that was used to build a lot of the structures dates back to 7,500 BC, which makes this by far one of the most ancient cities ever discovered on Earth.
More information regarding the city can be uncovered in the Mahabharata.
