For those curious about antediluvian civilizations, there may be no place on Earth where one may be more likely to find evidence of it than in India.
In this land, local traditions which are arguably antediluvian in origin are part of contemporary beliefs and practices, coming down to the present from ancient Sanskrit scriptures.
One place, which has recently garnered lots of attention as the possible remnant of a city of antediluvian antiquity is Dwarka, a coastal city in India’s northwestern state of Gujarat, whose name in Sanskrit literally means “Gateway to Heaven”. There have been ruins found off its coast which would have been above ground, when the Earth’s sea levels were roughly 400 feet below those of today, prior to the end of the last Ice Age. There have been structures and artifacts from there dated to be 32,000 years old.
Dwarka is located in the basin of the Indus River Valley, the region of one of the world’s most ancient civilizations in our post-Flood Holocene Epoch.
This 2013 film is by Amish Shah, a young American software developer and self-made millionaire of Indian ancestry. It charts his journey, in search of the so-called “Eastern Atlantis”. He takes us on location to Dwarka and the Arabian Sea, bringing ancient Hindu traditions of wars using “Flying Chariots” or Vimanas to life for Westerners today.
The origins of these legends may very well be of “Atlantean” vintage and the evidence for this may well be found in and around the city of Dwarka.
