Jyotirlinga-Somanatha Page1

The romance ran backwards. Aurangzeb, the fanatic, was the last ruler in whose reign this temple saw the worship of Somanatha. In 1706 it was converted in to a mosque. In the same year the Marathas entered Saurashtra.

Mirat-i-Ahmadi (1760)  attests to this conversion, but when the author wrote his chronicle it had gone out of use. Was it too old for use? Was it superstition? For in 1922 1 found a belief among the Muslims of the town that no one could use the stones of this temple and escape misfortune.
