was not a mere reconstruction of the temple, but of the whole town. It was extended by
adding a strong fort wall to the north and south of the temple. On the temple, Bhava
placed gold pinnacles as also on the temples of Gauri, Bhimeshvara, Kapardi (Shiva),
Siddheshvara and other divinities. A court room was made for the kings to assemble. A
reservoir was also constructed for pure water. In front of Lord Somanatha, a mandapa, with
beautiful and strong pillars, was erected; and the seat for the deity was made in the form
of a frog with a silver water-course.
