Somanatha : Detailed veiw of a mutilated image of Shiva Nagaraja Page1

For over a hundred years after the Fifth Temple was built by Bhava Brihaspati in A.D. 1169, Saurashtra continued to be under the Chalukyas and their branch, the Vaghelas of Anahilavada Patan. The land was fast coming to be known as Gurjaradesha or Gujarat. Somanatha, under the Pashupata Acharyas, also continued to be the guardian deity of the royal house as also of the people of Gujarat. Prabhasa Patan also continued to be a great entrepot and a sacred place of all-India attraction.

Bhimadeva II, styled Bhola Bhima, came to the throne of Patan in A.D. 1178. During his reign Mu-zz-ud-Din Ghuri invaded Gujarat, but was defeated and retreated to Ghazni with great difficulty.1

1 The Glory that was Gurjaradesha, Pt. III, p. 204.
