India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi worshiped at the ancient underwater city of Dwarka in the Arabian Sea off the coast of Gujarat.

According to Hindus, Dwarka has a relationship with Lord Krishna. For this reason, the place is very sacred to them. They believe that many years ago this prosperous city has sunk under water.

Media NDTV reported that Modi went to Dwarka town located near Beit Dwarka island through scuba diving. From there the ruins of the underwater city can be seen.

On Sunday, Prime Minister Modi donned a scuba gear and descended into the blue water to worship at a place of religious significance. That video and picture has spread on social media. Prime Minister Modi went under the water and paid his respects by offering a peacock feather at the bottom. Offering peacock feathers is a symbolic tribute to Lord Krishna.

Prime Minister Modi wrote on X (ex-Twitter) that worshiping in the water-immersed city of Dwarka is a very heavenly experience. I felt connected to an ancient age of spiritual glory and timeless devotion. May Lord Krishna bless us all.

Earlier today, Prime Minister Modi inaugurated the country’s longest cable-stayed bridge, connecting Okhra with Bait Dwarka Island in Gujarat’s Devbhoomi Dwarka district on the Arabian Sea. The bridge is made with a unique design. It has a pavement decorated with Gita verses and images of Lord Krishna on either side. 979 crore rupees have been spent on the construction of this 2.32 km long bridge.
