Background of Ayodhya Ram Mandir

Historical Significance

The Ram Mandir is located at the site of Ram Janmabhoomi, the hypothesized birthplace of Rama, a principal deity of Hinduism.

The site was the former location of the Babri Masjid, an Islamic structure that was built after the demolition of an existing non-Islamic structure.

Previous Structure

In 2019, the Supreme Court of India delivered the verdict to give the disputed land to Hindus for a temple of Ram, while Muslims would be given land elsewhere to construct a mosque.

Supreme Court Verdict

The court referenced archaeological evidence from the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) in its verdict.

Archaeological Evidence

The construction of the temple began in 2020, following the verdict.

Construction of the Temple

The temple is designed in the Nagara style of architecture, and it is planned to be 161 feet tall.

Design and Architecture

The construction of the temple is funded by donations from devotees across the world.

Fundraising and Donations

The VHP played a significant role in the movement for the construction of the Ram Mandir.
