SOMANATH - SOMANATH JYOTIRLINGA

Sure, the blood--stained hand of the iconoclasts can never regain its original colour, even if it is washed with the waters of all the oceans. Such incalculable harm was perpetrated on Hindus deliberately and systematically over nine long centuries. Even though the temple was brought to the ground level as many as 13 times, ironically, every time even before the fire was put out, or crashing sound hushed, it was rebuilt and renovated with innumerable additions that enhanced its glory. The immortal Linga started emerging the very next moment of the iconoclasts turning their backs on it, demonstrating to the world that the spirit of Hinduism is irrepressible, invincible and inexhaustible. Every time, either a local chief, or a distant theist emperor came forward with redoubled ardour and manifold resources to rebuild it in a way better, and design supreme.
