APPENDIX

In fact, Munshi was sitting with the Sardar at his house in New Delhi at night when a telephone message was received from the Regional Commissioner that Sir Shah Nawaz Bhutto had invited the Indian Army into Junagadh. When Sardar conveyed the news to Munshi, he gave expression to his joy with the words "So it is Jaya Somanatha". The Indian army entered Junagadh and took over the administration on the 9th November 1947.

Four days later, Sardar Patel visited Junagadh.' From Junagadh he went to Prabhas Patan and visited the temple. He was visibly moved at the sight of the famous temple which was the glory of India looking so dilapidated, neglected and forlorn. N. V. Gadgil, who accompanied Sardar, suggested that the Government of India should rebuild the temple. Sardar asked him to go ahead.

The Jam Saheb of Nawanagar announced a donation of one lakh of rupees and Samaldas Gandhi on behalf of Arzi Hukumat donated Rs. 51,000. The proposal as well as the donations were clearly spontaneous. At a huge public meeting held at the Ahalya Bai Temple ' Sardar announced: "On this auspicious day of the New Year, we have decided that Somanatha should be reconstructed. You, people of Saurashtra should do your best. This is a holy task in which all should participate."
