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.
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.
The court referenced archaeological evidence from the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) in its verdict.
The construction of the temple began in 2020, following the verdict.
The temple is designed in the Nagara style of architecture, and it is planned to be 161 feet tall.
The construction of the temple is funded by donations from devotees across the world.
The VHP played a significant role in the movement for the construction of the Ram Mandir.
