1698: Survey conducted by Amer ruler shows Gyanvapi clearly demarcated from the mosque

A land survey conducted by the ruler of Amer, Bishan Singh, explicitly shows the Gyanvapi mosque at the site of the dismantled Vishweshwar temple. The temple plinth and the Gyanvapi well are demarcated from the mosque. Following Bishan Singh’s death, his successor, Sawai Jai Singh II, constructs an Adi-Vishweshwar Temple about 150 yards from the mosque.
