Jyotirlinga-Somanatha Page1

On the plinth of the Fourth Temple, the Fifth Temple was erected. This was the edifice which we got demolished. The older plinth of the Fourth Temple, the sabha mandapa, garbhagriha and the pradakshina marga were enlarged. The garbhagriha and the sabha mandapa were not placed in a rectangle as in Temples III and IV, but diagonally. The old pillars of the Hindu type of the gudha mandapa were also constructed at this time. The steps were also raised and enlarged. The second protective sea-wall which we found was constructed to the south.

The flooring of the garbhagriha and part of the gudha mandapa were fixed with black basalt.
