Cambay Ruins- India, The 9500 years old sunken city

cambay ruins - Ancient sunken Indiann city

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.“

  1. Amazing… is this the same time scale in which evidence of nuclear destruction has been found in India? The Mahabharata also describes what sounds like a nuclear explosion.’.fierce winds, clouds roared upwards… the sun seemed to waver in the heavens, the earth shook..violent heat.. waters boiled, elephants burst into flame,… the missile of Adwattan burst with the power of thunder and the hostile warriors collapsed like trees burnt in a raging fire ‘
    and then there is the Bhagavad Gita..’ I am become death, Shatterer of worlds.’
    Was this sunken city connected with this time????.

    • Hi Valeriedavies,

      Yea it was the city ruled by Lord Krishna. Mahabharata took place at the same. In fact, the book mentions this city a lot of times and even mentions about it being swallowed into the ocean..
      But i wasn’t aware about the nuclear destruction you mentioned… I must dig up some info on that.. thanks a lot :D

    • Yea.. I guess it could be a meteor. But I’ve done some online reading after valariedavies comment. Some articles say that there are evidences of atomic war dated back around 10,000 years.. But i find that hard to believe.

  2. Great post! Just read in the Wall St. Journal, “Tool Clue to Early Man’s Mind,” that the discovery in South Africa of manufactured arrowheads going back 71,000 years demonstrates that humans had developed complex cognitive abilities 6,000 to 10,000 years earlier than had been thought previously. Civilizations might have been around during the last Ice Age. These facts also give credence to the universal myths of some ancient cataclysmic destruction of civilization. Fascinating.

  3. Yes! 71,000 years ago. Remeber when we were taught that civilzation started roughly 2,500 years BC? It might be more like 5,000-10,000 years BC. So maybe the lost civilization of Atlantis isn’t such a myth after all. Makes you go “Hmmm.” :-)

  4. One would think that there are many “Atlantises” dotted all over the globe – wonder if anyone has ever plotted them all on a map – fun and informative article! Thanks for visiting.

  5. what valeiridavies meant is that during mahabharatha war, they used nuclear weapons, even Robert oppenheimer(father of nuclear bomb) mentioned this in his talk. :-) thanxxx
