Jyotirlinga-Somanatha Page1

From the foregoing account it is clear that the temple was more or less neglected after the first quarter of the 18th century and was fast falling into ruins. The salt laden damp sea breeze had joined to bring about an early decadence of the body fabric. It was not until the arrival of Lord Curzon that effective steps for the preservation of the monument were taken. On his initiative, a compound-wall was constructed and the enclosed area around the temple was levelled up. In the temple itself, at various places underpinned masonry was inserted to save the superstructure from falling.
