History  of Ayodhya Ram Temple


Ayodhya, mentioned in ancient Hindu scriptures, holds immense significance as the birthplace of Lord Rama, a central figure in the epic Ramayana. The temple is said to have existed since ancient times.


In the 16th century, during the Mughal era, a mosque known as the Babri Masjid was constructed at the site in Ayodhya. This marked a period of religious and cultural coexistence.


In the 19th century, disputes arose regarding the ownership and origin of the site. The debate intensified over the years, leading to communal tensions.


The most controversial chapter in the history of the Ram Temple unfolded in 1992 when the Babri Masjid was demolished by a large crowd of activists.


This event sparked widespread unrest and communal tensions across the country.

Post the demolition, legal battles ensued to determine the rightful owner of the land. The case reached the courts, and the dispute remained a focal point of national attention.


In a landmark judgment in November 2019, the Supreme Court of India settled the long-standing dispute.


The court ruled in favor of the construction of a Hindu temple at the site, while also allocating an alternative piece of land to the Muslim community for the construction of a mosque.


In August 2020, the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, participated in the foundation stone-laying ceremony for the Ram Temple in Ayodhya. This event marked the official beginning of the construction process.


The construction of the Ram Temple is finally complete and the Temple is open for Darshan.
