A myth that turned out to be true: was the legendary city of Krishna found more than twenty years ago and why do the Indian authorities still prohibit its research?

A myth that turned out to be true: was the legendary city of Krishna found more than twenty years ago and why do the Indian authorities still prohibit its research? 1

A mythical place, the city of god was discovered at the bottom of the Arabian Sea in 2001. Dvaraka, as it is called, has been hidden from human eyes for thousands of years under an 130-feet water column.

“The wisest thing is time, because it reveals everything” – said the ancient philosopher Thales of Miletus. Someone will add: not only wiser, but also more powerful, because no one can resist time.

The waves of past centuries wash away not only people and their petty creations, but also civilizations and cities. Some cities manage to withstand the blows of these waves – as rocks stand even in the strongest storm, while others go under water – both literally and figuratively.

Some cities of antiquity were destined to find a new life. Some – like, for example, ancient Byzantium or Rome – even become the capitals of the new world. Others left forever – overgrown with grass, like Babylon, or, like Troy, rest under a layer of earth, waiting for their Heinrich Schliemann.

An amazing discovery took place in the state of Gujarat in northwestern India. There is no doubt that ten to twelve thousand years ago, at least in this area, there was a highly developed civilization. The discovery is able to convince even the most stubborn skeptics of this.

The press wrote:

“The huge city, 8 kilometers long and 3 kilometers wide, is believed to predate the oldest known ruins in the subcontinent by more than 5,000 years.”

The researchers correlated the place with ancient texts and determined that according to legend, Krishna lived in this city.

A thousands years old ancient epic, tells about the war of King Salva against the city of Dvaraka. Its author describes in detail the aircraft (vimanas), laser and jet weapons:

“Krishna has used a weapon that strikes like fire and the sun, and is as deadly as snake venom. It destroyed the vimanas, but King Salva managed to escape. Then Salva rushed towards Krishna and Krishna killed him with a shining disc.”

Dr. Richard Thompson, researcher of Indian culture, asked this question in the last century:

“If this is just mythology, how could the authors of ancient India describe the rocket, beam weapons and high-tech aircraft in such detail?”.

It is very unlikely that all Indian mythology is pure fiction. It is very similar to the fact that it describes the real facts. Only the narration was conducted by “mere” mortals, limited in knowledge and understanding of technology. That is why the legendary texts today seem like a fairy tale to us.

Dvaraka – Dr. Rao’s Atlantis

The ancient Dvaraka was discovered by Indian archaeologist Dr. S. R. Rao, the find was so sensational that the sunken city is now called “Dr. Rao’s Atlantis.” 

Dvaraka, will never again appear before people in the form in which it experienced the peak of its heyday:

“The new city in the middle of the sea was built very soundly: it had straight roads, wide streets and alleys, as well as wonderful gardens and parks where … trees of desires grew … In the city there were also many palaces and gates … Almost all the palaces were of extraordinary height. Each house had cellars where there were large gold and silver vessels for storing grain. There were many golden vessels with water in the rooms. The walls of the bedrooms were inlaid with gems, and the floors were tiled with mosaics from the precious marakata stone”.

But the legend tells us about the tragic end of the wonderful city. “Harivamsha” tells how, after Krishna’s departure from this world, the sea waves rose, and the abyss hid Dvaraka from human eyes – as if the city could not bear the separation from its great master and went to the bottom. 

“Apparently, Dvaraka was covered by a tsunami wave of enormous force, which threw huge stones composed from the walls. This probably led to the fact that the Gomati River changed its course, as archaeologist K.H. Vora testifies in his report,” says the famous researcher of Dvaraka, archaeologist Dr. Rao.

Geological research and aerial photography data confirm the evidence of ancient legends and tell us that several thousand years ago, an unprecedented catastrophe broke out on the coast of Gujarat and in some areas inland, accompanied by flooding of coastal territories, desertification of vast spaces and drying up of a whole network of rivers, of which the largest was the legendary Saraswati. Starting with a tsunami, the disaster dragged on for many centuries – the elements subsided only by the middle of the second millennium BC.

The main temple of Dvaraka is the Dvarakanath Temple. This is a Krishna temple built in the ancient Indian “Shikhara” style with sixty columns supporting a five-story carved conical tower. According to legend, the temple was built in one night by Vajranabh, the grandson of Krishna.

A mythical place, the city of god was discovered at the bottom of the Arabian Sea in 2001.  Dvaraka, as it is called, has been hiding from human eyes for thousands of years under a forty-meter water column.-3

In the spring of 2001, a team of researchers from the Department of Marine Archeology of the National Institute of Oceanography of India was working in the Gulf of Cambay. It was there that scientists made a discovery. This was announced on May 19 by Indian Minister of Science and Technology Manohar Joshi.

The follow-up study lasted three years. Many samples have been collected, some of them were sent for analysis to universities in Germany and the UK.

After painstaking work with artifacts, archaeologists unanimously came to the conclusion that in front of them were in fact samples from the lost city of Dvaraka. Of course, they were in no hurry with other statements, but the facts spoke for themselves. The found relics confirmed the existence of an ancient civilization preceding the current one.

The found fragments of statues, ruins of buildings and human bones date back to the eighth to tenth millennium BC. It is very similar to the fact that the heyday of the city was exactly twelve thousand years ago.

By the way, this date “pops up” in many other studies related to underwater finds. If we put aside all hypotheses and conjectures, it becomes obvious that it was then that the level of the world’s oceans rose sharply, to an extent that the outlines of all continents changed and the civilizations that had flourished up to this point disappeared, and the remnants of humanity were thrown into savagery.

But not all researchers remained silent about the Indian find.

The author of several articles, the researcher of the mysterious artifacts of the past, Graham Hancock, stated:

“In light of the startling discovery, the theory of the origin of civilization must be reworked from the ground up.”

However, in 2004, in the midst of research, the Indian government abruptly cut off access to the archaeological site for all scientists, both foreign and domestic. At least that’s what they said in their press release.

“Our views are completely different from yours.”

Every foreign researcher who applied to work at the sunken city received such a response.

What was found on the seabed that forced politicians to classify the work? Maybe the legendary Vimana was found, or something more serious?

One way or another, the huge ancient city is still closed and the authorities tremblingly guard the approaches to it. So we won’t know the truth for a long time.
