Gandhinagar: PM Modi on Sunday went scuba diving off the Panchkui beach coast in Devbhumi Dwarka and performed prayers as he witnessed the ancient Dwarka city of Lord Krishna, which is submerged in the waters.

Wearing a white diving helmet and ochre robes, Modi sat cross-legged on the sea bed, folded his hands in prayers while being helped by the Navy divers and waved peacock feathers before offering them to Lord Krishna.

“More than courage, it was faith,” he said after coming out. Scuba diving is conducted off the coast of Dwarka near Beyt Dwarka island, where people can see the underwater remains of ancient Dwarka excavated by archaeologists.
