Overview – 

The Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Temple is a significant Hindu religious site located in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh, India. It is believed to be the birthplace of Lord Rama, a central figure in Hindu mythology and the protagonist of the ancient Indian epic, the Ramayana.

The history of the temple site is steeped in controversy and has been a subject of dispute between Hindus and Muslims for centuries. The Babri Masjid, a mosque built in the 16th century by Mughal Emperor Babur, stood at the same site. However, Hindus believe that the mosque was built on the ruins of an earlier temple marking the birthplace of Lord Rama.

The dispute over the site led to decades of legal battles and communal tensions. The most significant event in this dispute was the demolition of the Babri Masjid by Hindu activists on December 6, 1992, which resulted in widespread violence and riots across India.After years of legal battles, the Supreme Court of India delivered a landmark judgment on November 9, 2019, ruling in favor of the construction of a Hindu temple at the disputed site. The court also directed the government to allocate an alternative piece of land to the Muslim community for the construction of a mosque.Following the court’s verdict, the construction of the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Temple began at the disputed site. The temple construction project is being undertaken by the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust, which oversees the planning and execution of the temple’s construction.

The temple complex is envisioned to be a grand structure symbolizing Hindu faith and culture, attracting devotees and tourists from across India and around the world. It holds immense religious and cultural significance for Hindus and is expected to become a focal point for pilgrimage and religious activities once completed.
