Jyotirlinga-Somanatha Page1

Cutting across the Garbhagriha Previous excavations in the garbhagriha had exposed in its northern wall two water-outlets, one below the other, and two brahmashilas of which one was found in situ while the other in the north-eastern corner of the sanctum. The latter evidently  had been displaced from its original position, of which no reliable record exists. The strata around the former had also been dug out in the process of its discovery.

With a view to ascertaining the full sequence of re constructions and relating them with the known floor level, a trench 155 feet long, 5-10 feet wide was laid across the garbhagriha; the portion of the trench within the cella was only 5 feet wide. At places the trench was carried down to the natural soil which was reached at an average depth of 17 feet below the present surface. The reconstructions fall into three broad phases, I-III, with sub-phases into the latter.
