 Navigating the Spiritual Seas

In the realm of religious and cultural tourism, the government is actively engaged in enhancing the experience for seekers. Following the footsteps of the Kashi Vishwanath Corridor and Mahakal Lok Corridor, the government is now focusing on the Dwarka Corridor. Under this ambitious project, a submarine journey to the original Dwarka is in the works, a collaboration between the central government’s Mazagon Dock Shipyard and the state government. Additionally, a colossal cable bridge, touted to be the largest in the Arabian Sea, is taking shape in Bet Dwarka, set to commence around Janmashtami.

The Submarine Plunge: A Dive into History

The much-anticipated submarine project is poised to kick off, possibly around Janmashtami or Diwali next year. While an official announcement is pending, vibrant speculations arise. Reports suggest that the submarine will descend 300 feet below the sea, offering a glimpse of Dwarka, the ancient city submerged in the sea, where Lord Krishna once walked. This captivating journey is estimated to span around 2.5 hours.

Special Features of the Submarine: Peering into the Depths

The submarine earmarked for Dwarka Darshan weighs approximately 35 tons and boasts full air conditioning. With seating for 30 passengers, each seat features a window view, ensuring an unhindered view of the natural beauty beneath the sea. However, only 24 passengers will be part of the pilgrimage, as the remaining 6 seats are reserved for the crew. The crew includes 2 drivers, 2 guides, a technician, and a photographer. Passengers will be equipped with oxygen masks, face masks, and scuba gear, ensuring a safe and immersive experience. The submarine will also offer video conferencing capabilities, allowing passengers to witness and record the underwater spectacle.

Exploring the Depths: Submarine Itinerary

The exact rental cost for the submarine journey remains undisclosed. Although the Gujarat government has yet to officially announce the rental fees, there are indications that the cost may be on the higher side. However, considering the public interest, the government is likely to provide subsidies, making this unique spiritual journey more accessible to the common man.

A Spiritual Plunge into History

In conclusion, the Dwarka Darshan by Submarine project is a testament to the government’s commitment to enriching the cultural and religious tourism experience. As we eagerly await the official launch, this innovative initiative promises to be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for spiritual seekers and history enthusiasts alike.
