PM Modi dives down to submerged city of Dwarka

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday offered prayers at the Dwarkadhish Temple in Gujarat’s Dwarka, by diving into deep water. Calling it a “divine experience”, PM Modi said he felt “connected to an ancient era of spiritual grandeur”.

“To pray in the city of Dwarka, which is immersed in the waters, was a very divine experience. I felt connected to an ancient era of spiritual grandeur and timeless devotion. May Bhagwan Shri Krishna bless us all,” Prime Minister wrote on X.

PM Modi shared pictures of himself underwater, wearing scuba gear, as he explored the “lost city” of Lord Krishna.

Dwarka, a legendary city mentioned in Hindu scriptures, is believed to have been ruled by Lord Krishna. According to Hindu belief, the city was eventually swallowed by the sea after Krishna’s departure from Earth.

“Today, I experienced those moments with will stay with me forever… I went deep in the sea and did ‘Darshan’ of the ancient Dwarka city. Archeologists have written a lot about the Dwarka city hidden underwater. In our scriptures also, it is said about Dwarka that it was a city with beautiful gates and tall buildings, as tall as the top of the world. Lord Krishna himself constructed this city,” PM Modi said as he addressed a rally after the Dwarka Darshan.
