The lost city of Atlantis (first described by Plato more than 2,000 years ago) is one of the oldest and greatest mysteries of the World which still captures the imagination of millions. Even after a long and tedious effort, people have been unsuccessful to locate Atlantis, which is believed to have submerged after an earthquake or tsunami. The city of Atlantis which would be bigger than today’s Libya and Asia combined made on top of the hill is supposed to be surrounded by rings of water and land. Plato describes it as a powerful and advanced kingdom that sank, in a night and a day, into the ocean around 9,600 B.C. Legend says that Atlantis city was built by Poseidon, god of the sea when he fell in love with a mortal woman Cleito. He made this city on top of a nearby hill and named it Atlantis.
The original inhabitants of the lost city of Atlantis are believed to be of extra-terrestrial origin and are believed to have been much taller and fair skinned than today’s average human being. People also believe that the inhabitants of this city possess exceptional powers such as the ability to control the weather, modify volcanic eruptions, etc. Even though the myth says that the inhabitants of the Atlantis City were superior beings but there are some of the opinions that it is just a mythical representation of a barbaric fashion of life.
One of the most amazing facts about this city under the sea is its rich wealth. The city is believed to have been a self-sufficient entity where people grew their own food, reared animals, made beautiful buildings and architectures from materials like black and red stone, had access to rare metals and even alloys like brass, made and used crystals extensively for leisure and experimental purposes and had a lot of free times to even play with volcanoes.
Where is Atlantis???
This is the major question that strikes minds of all the scientists. According to the saying of Plato, the city under the sea should have been somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean. However, no technology so far has revealed any such city on the ocean bed. For a long time, Azores was believed to be the site of the city of Atlantis. However, the new researchers have revealed a new site and the scientists are sure that Atlantis can be found in Cadiz, somewhere between the Spain and Morocco waters.
This topic has become a great mystery for the World and questions like where is Atlantis or does it even exist for real are still unanswered.
