Jyotirlinga-Somanatha Page1

It is always best to proceed from the particular to the general, from the known to the unknown; to try to relate a particular enquiry to some matter of general interest. One of such matters was to find the original site of the temple of Somanatha. At the risk of iteration, I enter in to syllogism of the basis of the available evidence.

Regarding the structure of the temple Dr. Nazim writes:1 "Its foundation was laid on large blocks of stone, and the roof was raised on 56 columns of teak which had been imported from Africa. The temple had a pyramidal roof thirteen storeys high, the top of which was surmounted by fourteen spherical knobs of gold which glittered in the sun and were visible from a long distance. The floor was made of planks of teak, and the interstices were filled with lead."

1 Muhammad Nazim, op. cit., p.212
