Jyotirlinga-Somanatha Page1

As the British established their ascendancy over the country, the rights of the Gaekwads of Baroda over the temple were progressively ignored in favour of the Nawabs of Junagadh. The policy of the Nawabs was to destroy the importance of Prabhasa as a place of Hindu pilgrimage. By political pressure and communal aggressiveness, the Hindus of Prabhasa, Veraval and even Junagadh were slowly cowed down into passive acquiescence in the fate of their beloved shrines.

The Gaekwads could not, and the British would not, interfere, and even the temple of Ahalya Bai 'began to lose its glamour. Attempts on the part of the Hindus from inside or outside the State to take an interest in the temple or in Dehotsarga were met with communal riots, and were later prohibited on the ostensible plea of maintaining communal peace.
