Hindu legend harkons back to a time when gods mingled with the peoples of ancient India, and the great city of Dwarka was once the fabled home and capital of the noted Vedic hero and god, Sri Krishna. Its luxurious and opulent walls were known to "cast a golden reflection" upon the surrounding waters of the Gujurat peninsula off the shore of northwestern India, and some believe, to have been the natural harbor city for the now dried up ancient river system of the Sarasvati described in detail within the Rig Veda. It is believed that perhaps Dwarka has submerged at least six times in its long history and the now modern day Dwarka is therefore the seventh such city to be built in the area with that name.Pieces of fired clays (for making pottery) were found giving ages of 20130 ± 2170 BP and 16600 ± 1150 BP.
