question was, did the Kanjur stone structure constitute the relics of an independent
Second Temple or was it merely a structure supporting the red stone temple? Mr. Thapar has
come to the conclusion that the Kanjur stone structure was the foundation of red-stone
temple, that is, the Third Temple, and not the relics of an independent Second Temple.
But on this hypothesis certain facts remain inexplicable. The Kanjur
masonry at some places was not mere fillings. At a corresponding level to this Kanjur
wall, there was a floor-level in the sabha mandapa built of the same stone.
