Section VII describes how the city of Dwarka was swallowed up by the ocean.Geological expertise can help determine the period when the city of Dwarka was lost beneath the ocean waves.
From The Mahabharata Mausala Parva, Section VII Translated by Sri Kisari Mohan Ganguli Vaisampayana said: The widows of the other heroes of the Bhoja , the Vrishni, and the Andhaka races, lordless now, that set out with Arjuna, numbered many millions.That foremost of car-warriors, that conqueror of hostile towns, viz., the son of Pritha, escorted this vast procession of Vrishnis, which still abounded with wealth, and which looked like a veritable ocean.After all the people had set out, the ocean, that home of sharks and alligators, flooded Dwarka, which still teemed with wealth of every kind, with its waters.Whatever portion of the ground was passed over, ocean immediately flooded over with his waters.Beholding this wonderful sight, the inhabitants of Dwarka walked faster and faster, saying, - "Wonderful is the course of fate! © 2002 by Linda Moulton Howe February 16, 2002Surat, India - A month ago in mid-January, marine scientists in India announced they had sonar images of square and rectangular shapes about 130 feet down off the northwestern coast of India in the Gulf of Khambhat (Cambay).NASA Images Discover Ancient Bridge Between India & Sri Lanka The bridge's unique curvature and composition by age reveals that it is man made.
The legends as well as Archeological studies reveal that the first signs of human inhabitants in Sri Lanka date back to the a primitive age, about 1,750,000 years ago and the bridge's age is also almost equivalent.

The text in Section VI predicts the sinking of the City of Dwaravati.
Dhananjaya (Arjuna), after abandoning Dwarka, proceeded by slow marches, causing the Vrishni women to rest in pleasant forest and mountains and by the sides of delightful streams. Not only are their sonar shapes with 90-degree angles, the Indian Minister of Science and Technology ordered that the site be dredged.
What was found has surprised archaeologists around the world and was the subject of a private meeting two weeks ago attended by the Indian Minister in charge of investigating the underwater site about thirty miles off the coast from Surat.
An American who traveled to that private meeting was Michael Cremo, researcher in the history of archaeology for the Bhakti Vedanta Institute in India and author of the book Forbidden Archaeology.
