the north-east corner was found a stone inscription in Brahmi lipi of the Valabhi period
(500-700); it was rather large. It is difficult to connect it with the First Temple; it
cannot be related to the Third Temple which cannot be dated much earlier than A.D. 800.
Over the structure of loose rough stones were walls of Kanjur stones pointed with lime.
Over this plinth of Kanjur stones was built the plinth of thin-grained reddish sand-stone
of which only two courses of a total height of 2 1/2 feet were found; outlet A is in this
red stone wall. The brahmashila A clearly belonged to the red stone temple.
