APPENDIX

In inviting Gadgil to be a Trustee it was specifically mentioned that in view of the fact that he was the head of the Ministry of W.M.P., it was appropriate that he should be one of the Trustees.

"On 22nd November 1949, the States Ministry wrote to Jam Saheb as follows: -
'Somanatha is an ancient heritage of ours,  and we have to take every care to see that the temple and its environments are maintained in a manner worthy of their ancient traditions. For this purpose we propose to constitute a Trust. Your Highness will remember that Sardar made an appeal for funds for the Somanatha Trust some time ago. The object, therefore, is one which deserves full support from all patriotic Indians and that is why I am making this suggestion.'

"Some time before the Constitution came into force, Saurashtra Government executed the Trust and it has been since carrying out the undertaking accepted by it when the merger of Junagadh was  effected. 

"The objects of the Trust Deed make it clear that the temple is not only to be open to all classes of Hindu community, but, according to the tradition of the old temple of Somanatha, also to non-Hindu visitors; that the area should be developed as a model town; that educational institutions including a University and agricultural farm should be established.
