Ahmedabad, Gujarat

Bangalore based Dr. S.R. Rao, a living legend, now at 84, but once an active, high profile archeologist who discovered Indus valley civilization site of Lothal, who bravely excavated Siddhpur’s Rudramahel site against all the odds, who successfully accomplished underwater excavation to discover Lord Krishna’s Dwarka city’s remains in Arabian Sea for 11 years, was in Ahmedabad recently to deliver a lecture and to share his knowledge about Lord Krishna’s submerged capital city Dwarka.

DeshGujarat.Com recorded his speech in which he presented some important aspects of his Dwarka discovery.

Mr. Rao has handed over a project to the government of Gujarat for building an underwater museum in Arabian Sea at Dwarka. He says that it would be interesting for people to actually see Lord Krishna’s Dwarka city’s fort wall and other remains under the water.
Salute to Mr. Rao for whatever he has done for Gujarat and for what he still intends to do.

Dwarka Excavation’s Video

Dwarka, DeshGujarat

Krishna’s Dwaraka was a western Indian city that according to Vishnu Purana was submerged by the sea right after the death of Lord Krishna. This was regarded as a grandiose metaphor, part of a story filled with great myths but In the early eighties an important archaeological site was found at Dwaraka from the Arabian sea, the site of the legendary city of Lord Krishna. Now, it is discovered that the whole coast of western India sank by nearly 40 feet around 1500 B.C. E. Why is that the rediscovery of Dwaraka has not attracted the same degree of attention in the West ? Big question that is.

    Can u kindly provide me the contact no. and address of Dr. S.R. Rao.. thanx..

  19. dilip patel says:

    I was over the moon when i found outy about the discovery of Dwarka.I want to know what the Govt of Gujarat is doing to revive this city. All the development and progress in our state means nothing if the Govt cannot revive , probably the greatest proof of our belief which has been handed ndown to us by Mr Rao. Mr Modi is my hero but he will have to do this karma for our Dharma. Let us prove the critics wrong and show the world the wonder that was Dwarka

  20. Santhosh Kumar C says:

    It is again proved that hindiuism is the true and only religion that respects and values all pronciples of life, and all those were mentioned by lord krishna and all those who criticise hindu religion should learn a lesson from this

    • Rkumar says:

      Mr. Satish, If you wish to be a true Hindu, practice tolerance and treat differences with others whether in religion or clothes or habits to be your own. India is a land that welcomed people that were persecuted by others. Hinduism does not ask you to differentiate.

    I am currently a student in the IB diploma program, in which I have to write an extended essay. I have chosen to do it on history and am looking into how the Aryan Invasion Theory doesn’t work, in light of evidence which has been discovered in the last few decades as well as why it was created and the impact it has had on the Indian civilization. One of these evidences in the finding of the city of Dwarka. Therefore, I would really appreaciate it if you could send me Dr. SR. Rao’s email address so that I might be able to use him as a source. I was going to be asking questions mainly pertaining to the topic stated above. Thank you in advance.

  29. Our Hindustan Needs 1000 Of Rao’s to make the world clear about the facts of Lord Krishna & Hinduism that it is the oldest religion in the world and is the only religion to survive in the world….

  30. NARASIMHA says:

    Mr. Rao has made us all Hindus to further instill the believe that we always had. This further asserts that the TRUTH can’t be with held for ever and it will present it-self in misterious ways. It would be great if we can all contribute to this noble cause in our humble yet useful way…I believe Lord Krishna, an extradinory human or GOD him-self has helped us to know about his existence. Thank you.

  31. Bala says:
