All over the world, there are sunken cities, in every single corner of our Globe we will find evidence of cities that crumbled and were devoured by the ocean. There’s more than 200 known sunken cities in the Mediterranean alone and what we’re looking at are the remains of cities at a time when mainstream archaeology tells us there were no cities, anywhere in the world, now it really does not take long to connect these ancient underwater ruins with unidentified objects. Throughout history we have reports of strange lights coming out of the oceans, strange phenomena that you cannot explain. Some of these lights are attributed the lesser-known marine counterpart to UFO‘s, the USO or Unidentified submerged objects. Is it possible that Alien civilizations have underwater bases on our very own ocean floor? Ancient Astronaut believers say yes.
Covering more than 71% of the planet, the Earth’s oceans are a vast and largely unexplored mystery and even today we have trouble accessing and mapping the ocean floor. For most of recorded history, man could only guess at what lay beneath the ocean’s surface, but thanks to today’s technology we are able to explore our oceans with greater detail then ever before. Today we have equipment that can access areas and depths that some years ago were inaccessible to us and we could only guess what was really down there, how many amazing underwater worlds are just waiting to be found?
Scientific theory suggests that during Earth’s last Ice Age, ocean levels were once much lower than they are today.“You have to envisage a world in which there are two mile-deep ice caps sitting on top of northern Europe and North America, in which are accumulated enormous quantities of water we know that this water began to melt about 21,000 years ago, and finished melting about 10,000 years ago.” – Graham Hancock
Huge areas were lost to the sea, rich coastlines were submerged by the increasing amount of water levels. “Ten million square miles of land was flooded all around the world. That’s roughly the size of Europe and China added together just rubbed from the record They just disappear from the story.” – Graham Hancock
Philosophers and scientists throughout history have been drawn to one of the greatest mysteries of the sea, the legend of the lost city of Atlantis. Most of what we know comes from the Greek philosopher Plato, who wrote two books about Atlantis, the Timaeus and the Critias. Plato described Atlantis as a highly advanced city, ringed by concentric walls, which flourished 9,000 years before his own time It’s stated that Atlantis had huge naval forces, which it used to conquer other parts of the world. According to the ancient Greek texts, Atlantis was connected with extraterrestrials from the beginning, it was founded by the Greek god Poseidon.
According to the legend, after a failed attempt to invade Athens, disaster struck the island and according to Greek philosopher Plato, Atlantis was destroyed in a day and a night but some researchers believe that the Atlantian somehow destroyed themselves.
The location of the real Atlantis remains a mystery even today, and even though many archaeologists may claim to have found the city, no conclusive evidence has been provided to support any discovery. According to Plato Atlantis was located in front of the Pillars of Hercules a location beyond what some scholars attribute to modern Gibraltar.
In 2000 while mapping the seafloor off the western coast of Cuba, a research expedition led by Russian-Canadian oceanographer Paulina Zelitsky spotted symmetrical stone structures deep below the water, this expedition was armed with side-scan sonar equipment used to create images of large areas of the sea floor and underwater objects. They came up with some amazing discoveries. Several pictures were snapped of what appear to be roads, man made structures, temples and pyramids. Most structures were gigantic, reaching 16 feet in height and weighing several tons and around 30 geometric structures emerged appearing to be the remains of streets, buildings, tunnels and pyramids, all at a depth of 2,200 feet below the surface of the water.

Atlantis is subject to many theories and myths, One myth tells of the Titan goddess named Asteria who fell from the sky and became an island. “In ancient Greece we have a number of myths which describe islands bronze, gleaming islands that fell from the sky and landed in water. I don’t think that Atlantis therefore, was an actual stationary, physical island Atlantis, according to Plato disappeared in one night with a lot of fire and a lot of smoke I don’t think that Atlantis sank I think Atlantis lifted off.”- Giorgio Tsoukalos
In 2001 researchers from India’s Oceanic Institute detected anomalies on the bottom of the Gulf of Khambhat, seven miles from shore. Thheir side-scan sonar started returning images of regular structures, the images revealed an enormous network of stone buildings, now shrouded in mud and sand, and covering a distance of five square miles. What we have here is a discovery of the remains of an ancient city– or cities as it appears they are two. They are positioned on the side of ancient river channels, they look cities that have been submerged for a very long time at a time when mainstream archaeology tells us there were no cities anywhere in the world. Scientists retrieved dozens of artifacts, including wood and pottery shards and this proves to be an amazing underwater worlds forgotten by history.
200 miles to the northwest lies the modern city of Dwaraka, archaeologists digging deep under the city found signs of a settlement once inundated by the sea. they were so inspired that they began searching for more ruins in waters just off the coast and in only 70 feet of water, divers discovered sandstone walls, cobblestone streets and evidence of a prosperous seaport. Scholars declared these ruins to be the remains of the ancient and legendary city of Dwaraka.
Ancient Hindu texts explain that the legendary city of Dwaraka was said to be the dwelling place of Lord Krishna, a deity worshiped across many traditions of Hinduism. Hindu texts explain that a king named Salwa attacked Lord Krishna in the mythical Dwaraka. Ancient astronaut theorists believe the descriptions of the battle suggest the use of alien technology and even spacecraft. According to the ancient Sanskrit texts Salwa attacked the city with a spacecraft which rained down energy weapons that resemble lightning. He destroyed large parts of the city in this way when this happened, the king of the city, the god Krishna, responded by firing weapons at this spacecraft. The weapons are described as arrows, but they’re not ordinary arrows, it’s said that they roared like thunder when they were launched, and resembled bolts of lightning or rays of the sun. In response, it is said that the spacecraft began to appear in different places simultaneously– moving in ways that resemble modern descriptions of UFOs.

The Andes Mountains, Peru. At an elevation of 12,500 feet, lie the dark waters of Lake Titicaca, the highest navigable body of water in the world. In August of 2000, an Italian team of divers and archaeologists launched an underwater investigation of the legendary lake, submerged under 100 feet of water, the team uncovered traces of a paved road’s, a stone terraces and a wall nearly a half mile long.
For centuries, local legends have spoken of a lost underwater city called Wanaku. Lying on the lake bed was a large, sculptured stone head and comparisons were quickly made to similar stonework found at the nearby ancient city of Tiahuanaco, just 12 miles south of Lake Titicaca. Is it possible that Wanaku lies at the bottom of this mysterious lake? Archaeologists have problems explaining why there are sunken ruins there, they’re saying that the ruins aren’t that old, they’re only 1,500 years old. What this means is that Lake Titicaca has gone through a number of major changes in that period.
It’s possible that somehow the lake itself and the shorelines were manipulated so that certain areas of Lake Titicaca were flooded in a artificial way. One of the most interesting things here is that there is a type of seahorse that lives in Lake Titicaca. As we know today, seahorses in oceans/salt water, yet these seahorses are living at nearly 13,000 feet in the Andes and that is simply amazing.
In the Aymara legends, the lake is like the place of genesis the place where it starts all the civilizations in the continent. The picture below is a comparison to the sculptured head that was retrieved from the bottom of lake Titicaca and as you can see there are incredible similarities.
One thing is for sure, there are amazing secrets below the worlds body of water and are just waiting to be discovered, is it possible that we can learn more of our history and origin by exploring the secrets in places such as Lake Titicaca? the Bermuda triangle? Only time and our natural desire for exploration will tell.
