Prime Minister Narendra Modi immersed himself in the azure waters off the Arabian Sea coast at Panchkui beach in Gujarat. Dressed in scuba gear, the Prime Minister undertook scuba diving to offer prayers at the underwater site believed to be the submerged ancient city of Dwarka, closely associated with Lord Krishna.

Sharing the extraordinary experience on social media, PM Modi posted photos of himself descending into the deep sea to perform the underwater puja. The ancient city of Dwarka holds immense cultural and spiritual significance, and according to legend, it submerged after Lord Krishna’s departure.

Expressing his emotions, PM Modi wrote, “To pray in the city of Dwarka, which is immersed in the waters, was a very divine experience. I felt connected to an ancient era of spiritual grandeur and timeless devotion. May Bhagwan Shri Krishna bless us all.”

During the underwater sojourn, Modi paid homage to Dwarka and offered peacock feathers as a tribute. In a public meeting in Dwarka, he shared the profound experience, stating, “A decades-old dream was completed today.”

Earlier in the day, PM Modi initiated his spiritual journey by offering prayers at the famous Dwarkadhish Temple in Gujarat. Dwarkadhish Temple, situated at the confluence of the Gomti River and the Arabian Sea, is a significant Hindu pilgrimage site dedicated to Lord Krishna.

The Prime Minister’s visit to Dwarka also marked the inauguration of Sudarshan Setu, India’s longest cable-stayed bridge, connecting Okha mainland and Beyt Dwarka. The bridge, formerly known as the ‘Signature Bridge,’ has been renamed ‘Sudarshan Setu’ and spans approximately 2.32 km. Constructed at an estimated cost of ₹979 crore, the bridge features a four-lane road with wide footpaths on either side.

PM Modi’s two-day visit to Gujarat began with a vibrant roadshow in Jamnagar, where enthusiastic crowds chanted slogans in his support. The visit showcases a mix of spiritual reverence, infrastructure inaugurations, and public engagements.
