Harappa, India

From series “Famous Sunken Towns”
Lenght: 8 km. Width: 3 km. Deepness: 35 m.

The submerged ancient city, whose age, according to preliminary calculations, is 9,500 years, was found In India, in the Gulf of Cambay. Ruins of the ancient city were found at a depth of 35 meters; they were discovered relatively recently, in 2002. It’s important to note that the very first archaeological artifacts in the Gulf of Cambay have been discovered much earlier, but their age compared with the age of the ancient city was more than modest; it’s no more than 5,000 years.

According to the most current and most logical version, the ancient city refers to Harappa civilization. It impresses with its impressive scale, as the ruins are 8 kilometers long, and their average width is about 3 kilometers. After thousands of years, constructions of the ancient city are still there; among them you can easily discern the stairs, walls of huge stone buildings and other related facilities. The scale of the ancient city is its most distinguishing feature making to refute any version of its origin associated with natural forces. Next - Baiae
