Actually Varanasi(Kashi) is more than 8000 b.c old as it is mentioned in Ramayana,Mahabharatha and other books.And Dwarka is more than 3000 b.c. old. It was the capital of lord Krishna.Now it has been submerged by water, but from carban dating it has been proved that is is around 3000 b.c.

Interesting to see that Jerusalem is the youngest of the featured cities. A holy city and certainly unique in many ways, full of religious hatred and bigotry. Probably the most unenlightened place on the planet, a complete abortion.

Well, now there is Tihuanaska in Bolivia, at least 12,000 years old, maybe 17,000 and Catal Huyuk, Turkey, between 7,500 BCE to 10,000 BCE. These really aren't new finds, but modern archaeological excavation and other techniques are solidifying the evidence. Because of its highly advantageous location with water, arable level land, natural wild game and abundant solid building materials, Eastern Turkey may turn up more cities. Catal Huyuk may have had a population of between 5,000 to 7,000 people.
