Taj Mahal’s Sunken Treasure

An old wreck, sunlit swimthroughs, and tons of fish help bring the Great Basses Reef to life in this short video by one of our followers.

Just off the coast of Kirinda, Sri Lanka, the Great Basses Reef Lighthouse (Maha Ravana) sits and waits for eager and adventurous divers.  It’s not a dive for beginners due to the shifting currents, but among the reef swimthroughs is the resting spot for the Coin Ship of the Mogul Emperor Aurangzeb.
