The accounts of the Arab Al Biruni on wealth and grandeur of Somnath temple impressed Mahmud of Ghazni. Mahmud destroyed and looted the temple, killing over fifty thousand people who tried to defend it . Mahmud personally broke the gilded lingam to pieces and took them back to his homeland and placed them in the steps leading to the newly built Jamiah Masjid, so that they would be stepped upon by those going to the mosque to pray.
