APPENDIX

Munshi elaborated these ideas in an exhaustive note which be submitted to Sardar. Sardar approved of Munshi's ideas and they were duly incorporated in the Trust Deed.

On February 15, 1949, the States Ministry issued a directive that it was no longer necessary for the Temple or any land in Prabhas Patan to vest in the Government of India. The Temple and the land which were then in the jurisdiction of theSaurashtra Government, Junagadh having merged in the meantime, and such property rights as were considered necessary for the prope fulfilment of the Trust, would later vest in the Trustees.

The draft Trust Deed was sent to Munshi for finalisation. Munshi found that the draft needed consider able revision. He enlarged the objects of the Trust as not merely to restore and reconstruct the Temple and the idol, but to improve the surroundings and set up such institutions as may restore the sanctity of Prabhas Patan and its surroundings. This was to include the construction of rest-houses for the pilgrims and setting up of educational institutions for Sanskrit.

The Trust was also to attend to the restoration of places like Dehotsarga-the place where Shri Krishna cast off His body. Munshi finalised the Trust Deed and it was accepted.
