DESCRIPTIONS OF THE CUTTINGS

The latter outstretched the limits of the former by 62 feet. The exact relation ship of this flooring with the temple was, however, not wholly clear, Other pre-Phase I structures met with in this trench comprised the sea-wall and a Kanjur stone retaining wall running roughly parallel along the length of the temple on the south. This possibly is a continuation of the one discovered in the Cutting across the garbhagriha. The former (i.e.   the sea-wall) was built of lime stone on 18 feet wide foundations and was available to a height of 3 feet. At the time of the  construction of Phase I temple, the width of the sea-wall was in, creased from 5 feet to 6 feet.

Phase II - The mandapa of Phase Il was of the same width as that of Phase I. Its plinth, which was 5 feet 6 inches in height, was raised from the top of the lower half of the earlier plinth. This involved raising of the floor-level by about 3 feet 9 inches. In the filling, in between the two floor levels, can be seen many carved stone pieces.
