Dwarka - Legendary city of Shri Krishna




In the early eighties an important archaeological site was found in Bharat, at Dwaraka, the site of the legendary city of Lord Krishna. Dwaraka was submerged by the sea right after the death of Lord Krishna.

This inscription refers to Dwaraka as the capital of the western coast of Saurashtra and still more important, states that Sri Krishna lived here. The discovery of the legendary city of Dwaraka which is said to have been founded by Sri Krishna, is an important landmark in the history of Bharat.

It has set to rest the doubts expressed by historians about the historicity of Mahabharata and the very existence of Dwaraka city. It has greatly narrowed the gap in Indian history by establishing the continuity of the Indian civilization from the Vedic Age to the present day.

I was just wondering how does one go from owning a food establishment and then think to go into a field just as digging in ancient ruins? You truly are a mystery woman :-) Not that , thats's a bad thing

When I was younger, there were only two things I ever wanted to do with my life. Dig in the dirt and make stuff in the kitchen. I managed to win several awards at food competitions, owned two restaurants before I was 30, and then I thought to myself. What can I do now? Life is too short.
