Print

Dwarka, a city steeped in mythical and historical significance, holds a unique place among the seven holy pilgrimage centers of India. Its prominence lies in its association with the ancient kingdom of Krishna, as described in the epic Mahabharata. According to the legends, Dwarka was the capital city ruled by Lord Krishna during his earthly reign. However, upon his demise, the city met a remarkable fate, as it is said to have submerged beneath the Arabian Sea. Intriguingly, modern-day archaeologists have embarked on a quest to unravel the mysteries surrounding Dwarka's existence. Their efforts have led them to the coast of present-day Dwarka, where they claim to have discovered compelling evidence pointing towards the existence of the lost kingdom.

Through underwater excavations and explorations, researchers are fervently working to comprehend the events that could have caused the submergence of this once glorious city. As scholars delve deeper into the enigmatic past of Dwarka, they hope to shed light on the circumstances that consigned this legendary city to the depths of the Arabian Sea, providing us with invaluable insights into a bygone era and the rich cultural tapestry of India.
