Welcome to my posts about ancient history and some of the cool stuff we never learned about in school.
Tonight we will be discussing the Bay of Cambay and an ancient city called Dwarka, which translates to The Golden City. Scientists discovered the underwater city in early 2002. Its located about 120 feet below the surface of the ocean in the Gulf of Cambay off the coast of India.
The city is fairly large at five miles long and two miles wide, and scientists estimate the site to be around 9,500 years old, which puts the find around 5000 years older than the known history of the Indian culture. What’s even crazier is that that some of the buildings and remains of its inhabitants are still intact.
There exists a legend that says Kirshna, a Hindu god built a beautiful and prosperous city. Is Dwarka the city of the gods? Not sure, but how cool would that be?!
