Mithun Pramanik | BBC | Delhi | January 15, 2022:: One of the seven holy pilgrimage centres in India, the city of Dwarka is not only of religious importance, but also archaeological. The city’s ancient incarnation, referred to in the epic Mahabharata as the ancient kingdom of Krishna, was spread across almost 84km as a fortified city where the Gomti River and the Arabian Sea meet. According to the text, the ancient city was sunk beneath the Arabian Sea upon Krishna’s death.

In the second half of the last century, archaeologists made attempts to find physical evidence of the sunken city off the coast of the modern-day Dwarka so they can prove its existence beyond doubt. As a result, many artefacts have been discovered underwater such as stone blocks and pillars; however, the exact age of these findings is still being debated. Now, archaeologists are planning an underwater dig to look for the foundations of the ancient city walls. If they find the exact location of the settlement, it’ll be of tremendous historical significance to India.

Nilesh Oak | Sangam Talks | Instt of Advanced Sciences in Dartmouth, U.S.A | May 16, 2021:: Rich evidence from astronomy decisively leads to 5561BCE as the year of the Mahabharata War. Also, newer evidence has come to light in the last 25 years that provides impressive corroboration for this. In this presentation, Nilesh Oak presents oceanography evidence from around the world that corroborates flooding and destruction of Krishna’s Dwarka, 36 years after the Mahabharata war, i.e. 5525 BCE.
