DESTRUCTION OF THE THIRD TEMPLE

Mahmud rested his army at Patan, replenished his stock of water and provisions, and left it unscathed. The army of Patan met the invader at Mundher- Modhera and was defeated. Something more must have happened at this stage, which the Muslim chroniclers have omitted in their writings.

Young emperor Bhoja had attained considerable strength. Bhima of Patan was  practically his vassal. Saurashtra was ruled by the Abhira king Mandalika, perhaps a feudatory of Bhima. Anarta, Khetaka Mandala and the valley of the Mahi formed part of Malwa; the valley of the Sabarmati was a part of Bhoja's dominion; and so  was Lata. The story of Mahmud putting up one Dabishleem as a temporary ruler at Patan is a later legend. This part of the country was quite rich.
