1. Port Royal, Jamaica
Founded in 1518, Port Royal was the shipping center of commerce in the Caribbean Sea. After a 7.5 earthquake hit in 1692 which followed by a large tsunami, this city was destroyed and was sent to the ocean floor.
Unfortunately over 2,000 of the people living there were killed and it was thought this all happened because of all the sins and dark matters committed in the area. What do you think? This place holds a lot of ancient energy that is still being explored to this day.
2. The Pyramids of Yonaguni-Jima, Japan
Experts around the world can’t seem to agree on wether the Yonaguni Monument which lies underwater just off the coast of Japan is a man made creation or if it was produced naturally in nature.
Usually in nature we don’t find perfectly cut squares and triangles but these pyramids could still have been mother nature’s own work of art. If the structure was in fact a manmade object, some experts suggest it could have been built during the last ice age at roughly 10,000 BCE.
These mysterious pyramids rise up a massive 250 feet starting from the sea floor. It is an amazing experience to scuba dive around, and many do for a once in a life time opportunity.
3. Dwarka, Gulf of Cambay, India
An amazing discovery in 2000 is bringing back the truth to an old Indian tale. The ancient city of Lord Krishna was thought to be merely a story but this discovery is suggesting otherwise.
The ancient tale says that Lord Krishna had a beautifully decorated city. It was made up of a staggering 70,000 palaces all made out of gold, silver, and other precious metals and building materials. The city and it’s citizens we’re thriving up until the point of Krishna’s death. At that point is when the city went array. The ruins are located 131 feet beneath the ocean surface in the bay of Dwarka, one of the seven oldest cities in India. Do you think this tale is true?
4. Lion City of Quiandao Lake, China
This amazing intricately designed city resides at the bottom of Quiandao Lake in China. The details in the architecture and sculptures are completely mind blowing. The way in which this city was built is a whole other mystery in itself.
Lion City was originally built during the Eastern Han Dynasty at roughly 25-200 CE. The entire city covers around 62 football fields in total area, while being around 85 to 131 feet beneath the surface of the water. The lake is also known as Thousand Island Lake and was intentionally flooded in the 1950s to create a dam.
