Ram Mandir (राम मंदिर, अयोध्या),
Uttar Pradesh, India

The Ram Mandir, also known as the Ayodhya Ram Mandir, is a Hindu temple located in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh, India. It holds great significance in Hinduism as it is dedicated to Lord Rama, a revered deity in the Hindu religion. The temple is built at the site believed to be the birthplace of Lord Rama, known as Ram Janmabhoomi.


The history of the Ram Mandir is closely tied to a long-standing religious and political dispute in India. The Babri Masjid, a mosque, was built at the site in the 16th century by the Mughal emperor Babur. In 1992, the mosque was demolished by a group of people, leading to widespread controversy and communal tension. The demolition of the Babri Masjid ignited a legal and political battle over the ownership of the land.


After years of legal proceedings, the Supreme Court of India, in a landmark judgment on November 9, 2019, granted permission for the construction of a Hindu temple at the disputed site. The court also ordered the allocation of an alternative piece of land to the Muslim community for the construction of a mosque.


The construction of the Ram Mandir officially began on August 5, 2020, with a groundbreaking ceremony attended by various dignitaries, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The temple is expected to be a grand structure with intricate architecture, reflecting the significance of Lord Rama in Hindu mythology.


The Ram Mandir project holds immense cultural and religious importance for millions of Hindus in India and around the world. It symbolizes the culmination of a decades-long legal and social struggle, as well as the fulfillment of a longstanding aspiration among Hindus to have a grand temple dedicated to Lord Rama at his presumed birthplace.
