For decades divers have reported submerged megalithic ruins of the legendary cities Kahnihmweiso and Kahnihmw Nankhet, resting on the shallow seafloor off the southeast coast of Temwen Island, a small lagoon-island right next to the southeatern side of the island of Pohnpei, in the western South Pacific, famous for its acres and acres of Nan Madol ruins there, built after the sea level had risen to consume the first cities.
Ancient Pohnpeian legend says the builders of Nan Madol selected the site because they saw the submerged ruins of Kahnihmweiso from a high cliff above Madolenihmw (Madolanim) Harbor, which is between Temwen Island and Nakapw Island. To the east of Nahkapw Island, in about 200 feet of water, are the ruins of the castle of Kahnihmw Nankhet, well known to the natives of Pohnpei, but none of the submerged ruins much talked about for fear of spirits who would punish them.
But adventurer and author David Hatcher Childress convinced the tribal chief of the area, Masao Hadley, to talk about the submerged ruins, who told Childress where to dive, then photographed some of the megalithic columns and pillars which still stand erect, rising up to 30 feet above the sloping seafloor, 12 of them, huge megalithic constructions from the Ice Age, when sea level was a few hundred feet lower, and so, Pohnpei Island was, at that time, quite a bit larger (that bit now submerged).
The curator of the Pohnpei Museum, Pensile Lawrence, and mainstream academic archaeologist, photographer, and diver, Arthur Saxe, have confirmed these submerged ruins, along with many native fisherman and divers, so the question is, when did these cities go under? There are no signs of earthquake faults which could show that the cities dropped into the sea, and these volcanic islands of Micronesia would, if anything, have risen through the centuries, not subsided, so it’s apparent that sea level rise was the cause of the submergence.
Confirmation is the other submerged ancient cities discovered off India, Spain, Egypt, Morocco, Lebanon, Bimini, Libya, Greece, and Japan, when catastrophic climate change was occurring with the end of the Ice Age.
