Ram Mandir Ayodhya History

  • The Ram Mandir is a Hindu temple under construction in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh, India. It is being built at the site where Hindus believe Lord Rama, a revered deity in Hinduism, was born.
  • The site has been a subject of religious dispute for centuries, as it was also the location of the Babri Masjid, a mosque demolished in 1992 by Hindu mobs.
  • The demolition of the Babri Masjid triggered widespread religious violence across India.
  • A lengthy legal battle ensued, culminating in a 2019 Supreme Court verdict awarding the disputed land to Hindus for the construction of a Ram temple.
