APPENDIX

At that stage it was considered that the re-installation of the idol would not interfere with the maintenance of the old temple. The specialists, on scrutiny, found that the ruins were salt-eaten and irreparable; nor could they stand a spire. Religious injunctions also stood in the way of installing the deity in ruins which could not be renovated as prescribed. It was, therefore, finally decided to rebuild the temple.

On December 13, 1947, the Standing Committee of the Ministry of Works, Mines and Power of the Government of India approved of the idea and Gadgil instructed his Consulting Architect to visit Prabhas Patan. Though the Government of India sponsored the scheme, Sardar under the advice of Gandhi decided that the Government should not make any contribution in the form of money for the reconstruction of the temple.

On December 25, 1947, the States Ministry decided to request the Junagadh authorities to lease a sufficient large area around the temple for development on these lines. 

On January 23, 1949, a conference was held at Jamnagar attended by Sardar and Gadgil with the Jam Saheb of Nawanagar, U.N. Dhebar, Chief Minister of Saurashtra, and Samaldas Gandhi, Administrator of Junagadh.
