APPENDIX

The trust, it was then decided, was to consist of two representatives of donors; two eminent public men; two representatives of the Government of India; and two representatives of the Government of Saurashtra (of whom one would 'be from Junagadh). The Board of Trustees were to be assisted by an Advisory Committee, the composition of which was to be settled by the Government of India.

The objects of the Trust were to include 'not only the rebuilding and the maintenance of the Somanatha Temple itself and its auxiliary institutions, the renovation of Dehotsarga where Lord Shri Krishna cast off His mortal coils, but also the general improvement of the neighbourhood so as to restore its atmosphere of sanctity.' Munshi was requested to prepare the Trust Deed.  

Munshi's view was that a temple 'by itself would not be enough in these days of cultural resurgence, nor did the authoritative tradition of a great temple permit its dissociation from a centre of learning. If the temple was to be a real centre of attraction for the country, it should have close association with an All-India Sanskrit University and should also have a suburb where people could come either for health, study or for rest, and a Goshala.
