Dwaraka Excavations

The Hindu reports

Ancient structural remains of some significance have been discovered at Dwaraka, under water and on land, by the Underwater Archaeology Wing (UAW) of the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI)

Thirty copper coins were also found in the excavation area. The structures found on land belonged to the medieval period.

The pictures look really good. Wish such underwater excavations take place in Mahabalipuram, Poompuhar..etc.,
