Did you ever search for Dwaraka ? the holy city which is still under sea and is believed to be atleast 12,000 years old! Thats a lost city! Why would someone call it a lost city after they find it..

A more complete California ghost town is the abandoned mining town of Bodie, located about 10 miles east of Route 395, north of Lee Vining ( the eastern portal to Yosemite). Preserved as a state historical site, it is well worth a visit, and is, I believe, more representative of California's mining days than Darwin.
