Jyotirlinga-Somanatha Page1

BY 1675 1 Hindu India was ready to overthrow the intolerable rule of the fanatic Aurangzeb. The south had risen under Shivaji; so had the Sikh Gurus as also many Rajput chiefs in Rajasthan. In 1701, Prince Mohammad Azam, the 39th viceroy  of Gujarat, was ordered by Emperor Aurangzeb 'to destroy the temple of Somanatha beyond possibility of repairs."2

This dispatch refers to a similar order issued at the beginning of Aurangzeb's reign. Evidently the earlier Firman of 1669 had not been carried out, or if carried out, had led to an immediate restoration of the temple.
