[dropcap]In[/dropcap] 2001, researchers from India‘s Oceanic Institute detected anomalies on the bottom of the Gulf of Khambhat, seven miles from shore.They had been commissioned by the Indian government to do a survey of pollution in the Gulf of Khambhat up in the northwest of India.And they were not expecting to find anything except a mess down there.But suddenly, their side-scan sonar started returning images of regular structures.The images revealed an enormous network of stone buildings, now shrouded in mud and sand, and covering a distance of five square miles.What they were looking at in the Gulf of Khambhat were the remains of cities.There’s actually two of them.And it turns out that they are positioned on the side of ancient river channels.They look lime cities that have been submerged for a very long time, at a time when mainstream archeology tells us there were no cities anywhere in the world.Powerful crosscurrents made it nearly impossible to dive the 170 feet to the bottom.Still, scientists retrieved dozens of artifacts, including wood and pottery shards.Some of the dates on some of the human artifacts that were brought up extended as far back as 32,000 years.But the oceanographers concluded that the area had been covered by water about 9,000 years ago.So this city had apparently existed from 32,000 to about 9,000 years ago.Mainstream scholars today claim that ancient Indian civilization only goes back 4,000 or 5,000 years.Yet, Hindu scholars themselves say that Hindu civilization is going back many tens of thousands, even hundreds of thousands of years.Might the ruins below the Gulf of Khambhat prove the Hindu scholars right?
Another recent discovery may support their claims.200 miles to the northwest lies the modern city of Dwaraka.Archaeologists digging deep under the city found signs of a settlement once inundated by the sea.Inspired by this clue, they began searching for more ruins in waters just off the coast.In only 70 feet of water, divers discovered sandstone walls, cobblestone streets and evidence of a prosperous seaport.Scholars declared these ruins to be the remains of the ancient and legendary city of Dwaraka.
Ancient Hindu texts explain that the legendary city of Dwaraka was said to be the dwelling place of Lord Krishna, a deity worshipped across many traditions of Hinduism.Imagine what it would mean for the Christian world to all of a sudden discover the actual Holy Grail, the actual Ark of the Covenant.That would be akin, for the Indian population, to discover an actual Dwaraka.This was a very powerful city, which was ruled by Lord Krishna.And Krishna is still revered until today.He’s one of the highest gods that we have in Hindu culture.Hindu texts explain that a king named Salwa attacked Lord Krishna in the mythical Dwaraka.The descriptions of the battle suggest the use of alien technology and even spacecraft.According to the ancient Sanskrit texts, with this spacecraft, Salwa attacked the city, raining down energy weapons that resemble lightning.He destroyed large parts of the city in this way.When this happened, the king of the city, the god Krishna, responded by firing weapons at this spacecraft.The weapons are described as arrows, but they’re not ordinary arrows.It’s said that they roared like thunder when they were launched, and resembled bolts of lightning or rays of the sun.In response, it is said that the spacecraft began to appear in different places simultaneously.It appeared to be moving in ways that resemble modern descriptions of UFOs.So what is interesting about these UFO sightings, there’s a spacecraft made of metal that is firing down weapons on a city on Earth.The legend says that Krishna eventually departed Earth, and the ocean consumed his city of Dwaraka.For many people, the description of fabulous ancient cities in the Sanskrit writings of India were simply mythology, but with the discovery of the remains of a sunken city off the coast of India in the location of Dwaraka, all that has changed.People are beginning to look at these ancient writings in a new light, and see them not simply as mythology, but as actual historical records.Did India‘s ancestors witness a war between extraterrestrial entities? If the mythical city cited in the Hindu texts turned out to be real, could there also be evidence of Krishna and his supernatural powers? There is a link between the submerged ruins and extraterrestrials that can be found in another set of texts known as India‘s Sangam literature.Sangams were assemblies of sages.
