Archaeologists’ discovery of the legendary, 9,000-year-old city of Dvaraka provides significant proof of the Mahabharata’s historical accuracy.

A significant milestone in the validation of the Mahabharata’s historical veracity is the finding of the legendary city of Dvaraka, which is claimed to have been founded by Sri Krisha. It has put to rest the doubts historians had regarding the historical accuracy of the Mahabharata and the existence of Dvaraka City.

By establishing the continuity of the Indian civilization from the Vedic epoch to the present, it has significantly narrowed the gap in Indian history. The discovery has also provided helpful information about secondary urbanization during the so-called “Dark Age,” the revival of dharma, the impact of marine trade, the use of Saskrit writing, and modified Ids script.

In addition, scientific data has been generated by underwater exploration for a study of sea level changes and the impact of the marine environment on metals and wood over long periods. All of this was made possible by the diligent and courageous work of marine archaeologists, scientists, and technicians at the National Institute of Oceanography’s Marine Archaeology Center.

Exploration of Dwarka
Dwaraka is a coastal town in Gujarat’s Jamagar district. Traditionally, modern Dwaraka is identified with Dvaraka, the city that Krishna calls home in the Mahabharata. Dwaraka was a harbor, and some academics have identified it as Barka Island in the Peripheral of the Erythrea Sea.

A significant archaeological site is Acit Dwaraka Sak in the sea. The Palitaa Plates of Samata Simhaditya, which are dated 574 A.D., contain the first authentic historical documentation of the vanished city. This document describes Dwaraka as the western coast of Sarashtra’s city and, more significantly, mentions that Sri Krisha dwelt there.

Under the direction of H.D. Sakalia, the Decca College, Pe, and the Department of Archaeology, Government of Gujarat, conducted the first archaeological excavations at Dwaraka in 1963. It made ancient artifacts visible.

A second record of excavations was recorded in 1979 by the Marié Archaeological Unit (MAU) of the Archaeological Survey of India (SI), which was overseen by Dr. S. R. Rao, one of the most renowned archaeologists in India. Rao, an emeritus scientist at the National Institute of Oceanography’s marine archaeology division, has discovered a significant number of Harappa sites in and around the port city of Lothal in Gujarat. He discovered what is known as “Lstros Red Ware,” which may be older than 3,000 years. The quest for the lost city in the Arabian Sea began in 1981 based on the findings of these excavations. For 20 years, scientists and archaeologists have jointly worked on the site.

In 1984, the Prime Minister personally sponsored the “derwater exploration” project for three years. Excavating beneath the water is a difficult and difficult task. The ocean provides far too much resistance. Excavation is only possible during low tide between November and February. There should be beautiful sunshine and a smooth sea. All of these requirements reduce the number of division days to 40 to 45 each year, respectively. Divers use echo to gain a pretty accurate picture of the location and depth of the object underwater in order to make the most of the time they have available.

A view of the ocean floor is provided by the side-sca soar. The sea signals are situated by the water behind the signals. Reading the signals exposes the object’s wide range of motion. Together with the standard diving equipment like the scba, underwater scooters were also put to use. S.R. Rao’s team made discoveries between 1983 and 1990 that cemented the existence of a submerged city.

The Underwater Archaeology Group (UW) of the Archaeological Survey of India (SI) started excavations at Dwaraka once more in January 2007. According to Lok Tripathi, a subaerial archaeologist at the University of Washington, the actual underwater structures for the Arabian Sea have not yet been identified. “We must determine what they are. They’re fragmeets. I would like not to refer to them as a wall or a temple. They are a part of something, claimed Dr. Tripathi, a trained diver himself. Excavations are being conducted simultaneously in both the open area (near the Dwarakadhish temple) and the ocean, according to Dr. Tripathi, “so that data from both the areas can be co-related and scientifically analyzed.”

The purpose of the excavation was to determine the site’s authenticity based on physical evidence. The ASI’s guided underwater archaeologists into the offshore excavation, and Navy divers searched the subaerial remnants. The documents were signed, date-stamped, and documented. Oh my God, excavation work was being done in the Dwarakadhish temple’s foundation. For the benefit of the SI archaeologists, students from Gwalior, Lockow, Pe, Vadodara, Varaasi, and Bikaer joined forces.

The National Institute of Oceanography was commissioned by the Indian government to conduct a survey of the pollutant levels in the Gulf of Khambat, which is located several miles offshore, in 2001. They discovered buildings made of houses coated in mud and snow across five square miles while surveying the area. Scientists estimate that the blocks, samples, artifacts, and copper coins that divers have collected represent evidence from a period that is roughly 3,600 years old. The results of some of the samples sent to Maîpâr and Oxford University for carbon dating were more spicy than expected because some of the artefacts were estimated to be 9,000 years old.

The discovery of an archaeological site dating back to 7,500 BC in the bay of Conflict, earlier than any previously asserted earliest sites of civilization, is in fact mind-boggling.

A significant number of stone pillars have come to light as a result of excavations at the Dwarka excavation site. They range in water depth from the intertidal zone to six meters and are semicircular, rectangular, and square in shape. Across a broad area, they are dispersed randomly. Together with these reefs, numerous species of shore anchors have also been discovered beyond 6 meters of sea depth, in addition to these reefs.

These findings suggest that Dwarka was once one of the busiest port cities on India’s west coast. The comparative stability of archaeological sites indicates that the construction of Dwarka may have taken place between the History and Late Medieval periods. The remnants of the fabled lost city of Dwarka, which according to ancient Hid literature was the residence of Krishna, have been declared.

One or two divers take the coins, and a third person sketches the pictures. To maintain the Gomati Channel open, the Public Works Department strictly prohibits dredging in these waters. Many sediments are thrown up as a result of this, and they settle in underwater areas. To reveal the strangles, brides are need to clear these criteria.

The city of Dwarka’s mere existence was a topic of legal debate until recently. With the discovery of the remnants underwater, it is possible to conclude that this is the legendary Dwarka, the residence of Lord Krishna.
