We all have heard the story of the lost city of Atlantis and, most of us thought it to be an actual underwater city. But it was all myth.
The term ‘Atlantis’ was first used by Athenian Philosopher Plato in his works, Timaeus and Critias. Since then, the story of the lost city spread like fire and, people started speculations about the existence of an underwater city.
Story Of The Lost City Of Atlantis:
The founders of Atlantis were half-god and half-human and it was protected by the god Poseidon. The location of the city was believed to be in the Atlantic ocean just below the Strait of Gibraltar.
Atlantis was a culturally advanced utopian civilization filled with ethical and spiritual people. But as the Atlanteans grew powerful, their ethics went down. Their armies attacked Africa, Egypt, and other countries. This act of theirs angered the gods. Later, one night the island sank and, people believed it was the punishment for their deeds by the divine forces.
