Jyotirlinga-Somanatha Page1

In January of 1948, at the invitation of Samaldas Gandhi, the Gujarati Sahitya Parishad was held at Junagadh under my presidentship. Literary Gujarat had gathered at the native town of her greatest poet Narsi Mehta. My joy knew no bounds. My dream of Gujarat was coming true, and in my lifetime too. From Junagadh the literary conference made a pilgrimage to Somanatha. Jam Saheb was with us.

When I saw the temple of Somanatha in detail, I stood awe-struck. Some of the old structures-garbhagriha (inner shrine), part of pradakshina marga (the circumambulatory passage), antarala (the intermediate corridor) and the gudha mandapa (central hall) with its three domes were all there.
