9500 years old sunken city named Cambay Ruins (commonly known as Dwarka City in India) was found off coast of India in the bay of Cambay.
Carbon-dating estimates the site to be a whopping 9,500 years old. The discovery astounded scientists because it predates all other finds in the area by 5,000 years, suggesting a much longer history of the civilization than was first assumed. More amazingly, the ruins contain architecture, pottery and human remains which are still intact. This forces historians to reevaluate their understanding of the history of civilization in the region.
This sunken city lies 120 feet below sea level and is 5 miles long and 3 miles wide. It was discovered by accident in 2002 by India’s National Institute of Ocean Technology as they where testing pollution levels. The discovery is more significant for Indians because Hindu Epics such as Mahabharatha which are often considered as myths have often mentioned this city. The ancient book says “On the same day that Lord Krishna departed from the earth the powerful dark-bodied Kali Age descended. The oceans rose and submerged the whole of Dwaraka.“
