Excerpt from The Moonstone, Vol. 1 of 3: A Romance

Of all the deities worshipped in the temple, the moon-god alone escaped the rapacity of the con-x quering Mohammedans. Preserved by three Brah mins, the inviolate deity, bearing the Yellow Dia mond in its forehead, was removed by night, and was transported to the second of the sacred cities of India - the city of Benares.

Here, in a new shrine - in 'a hall inlaid with precious stones, under a roof supported by pillars of gold - the moon-god was set up and worshipped. Here, on the night when the shrine was completed, Vishnu the Preserver appeared to the three Brahmins in a dream.
