The Lost Chambers, Atlantis - a gateway to discover the Legend of the Lost City of Atlantis


Have you heard of the legendary Atlantis? The continent of Atlantis disappeared into the ocean which scientists generally believed was caused by an earthquake related to gigantic underwater volcanic eruption. The famous Greek Philosopher Plato introduced Atlantis through his works around 360BC. Whether Atlantis is a myth or a fact is still a mystery up to now but it won't stop historians and scientists to continue their research with the hope to uncover the mystery. For the whole story please check this link: The Story of Atlantis.

While the resort (Atlantis The Palm) was under construction they were able to discover secret passages, their investigations revealed that in theory these could be a part of the Atlantis. Whatever they were able to recover they put them in display at 11 million litre marine home which they called The Ambassador Lagoon.

The Ambassador Lagoondisplays rare artifacts from a long lost civilization and home to more than 65,000 marine animals.


For more photos of the Ambassador Lagoon please check this link.

The Lost Chambers - Atlantis The Palm, Dubai made it possible for us to explore the mysterious ruins of Atlantis., it comes alive within the passageways and tunnels of The Lost Chambers.

The Lost Chambers is divided into 10 Chambers including the Navigation Room, Knowledge Room, The Abyss, Red Sage Chamber, Seven Sages Chamber, Blue Sage Chamber, The Workshop and the Generator Room.

Left picture: Navigation Room where the Sages will plot their travels for research.
Right picture: Knowledge Room Telephone is used by the Sages to communicate with the outside world, interesting right?

The Abyss - The Sages use this room to prepare for mining, it is the gateway to the mine that held rich minerals and treasures.  On the left is their Leather suit used for mining and on the right is the bronze and leather elevator to transport them to the mine which is at the center of the earth.

Technology Center- you are looking at their very interesting banking system! Yes you got that right. Through this equipment  the Atlanteans would conduct their business, depositing and withdrawing blue crystals which was their standard currency.  Cool huh! For a CPA, I find this so amusing!


Red Sage Chamber- The Sage used this room for astronomical studies.

Seven Sages Chamber -  you are looking at Atlantis' Organic Computer! Yeah you read that right. The Sage goes to this chamber to upload data from their exploration.  The computer was powered by the energy coming from the surrounding crystals.

Blue Sages Chamber- is the Atlateans martial arts training centre for self defense, this is where they prepare for battle. In the picture is few of their battle weapons, the Bone-Sword, Bow of Anshan and Might of Heroes Axe

Some amazing displays inside The Lost Chambers:

    I've already heard about Atlantis and until now it's still a myth to me.
    Maybe you, Vivi could stop the mythology and expose what's behind of it. haha (kidding)

  13. Some says its true on the other hand it is a myth but I do believe it is true since there are few traces of facts and evidence that it do existed.

  15. interesting, made me wonder if it once existed :)

  16. Is Atlantis real? Maybe yes, maybe not...but for legends sake and to fuel our imagination lets err on the side of fantasy and probability and mystery...otherwise the world would be a very sad place. Thanks for sharing the mystery!
