Bay of Cambay Ancient City. The Bay of Cambay was discovered by marine scientists in early 2002. The city is located 120 feet underwater in the Gulf of Cambay off the western coast of India. The city is five miles long and two miles wide, carbon dating estimates the site to be a whopping 9,500 years old, and, more amazingly, architectural and human remains are still intact.

It is 800 feet high and carved out of the hillside - visible 12 miles out to sea. No one has a clue why it's there."
