Again, in early 1985, the fourth under-water excavation discovered two submerged sea walls, 20 to 30 feet below the sea-bed a few metres apartĂ˘â‚¬â€ťalso reported in The Hindu, the same year (1985), how the old Dwaraka Port, once the Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“gatewayĂ˘â‚¬Âť of ancient India, was submerged four to five thousand years ago, was scientifically explained by Mr. C.S. Mahadevan of Madras vide The Hindu, February 21, 1985. Dwaraka was partially submerged according to him in 3031 B.C..
