Ayodhya is one of the holy cities in India. Many tourists come here to visit historic and religious places. People are living peacefully and enjoying their lives. But, one matter relating to the Rama existence there was arising from time to time by political parties and people of India about the Rama temple and Babri masjid.

It has been the most controversial topic among the people of India. A section of Hindu and a section of Muslim community had a debate on the site of Ram Mandir or Babri Masjid stood in that place.

The political, historical and socio-religious debate over on the history and location of either Ram temple or Babri Masjid.

The matter of temple or Masjid had created violence in 1992 between Hindus and Muslims. This topic was hot news in previous days, months and years.

After a long discussion and debates in courts, this case was sent to the Supreme Court and hearing all evidence provided by both sides, the Supreme Court decides the matter and gives the right decision so that all Indians should know the facts and live in a peaceful environment.

India’s Hindu and Muslim communities anxiously await a Supreme Court verdict over the construction of the Rama temple and the destruction of the Mosque in the city of Ayodhya.

The five judges of the Supreme Court bench heard the matter and dispute the case and after a long debate, the Supreme Court delivered a historic judgement that the land to be handed over to a trust to build the Hindu temple and also they had ordered the government to give alternate 5-acre land to the Muslim community to build the Mosque.

On 5 February 2020, The trust is known as Shri Ramjanam Bhoomi teeth Kshetra was created by Government. After coming out the verdict and being ordered by the Supreme Court, both communities have agreed on the decision and give full faith in the Supreme Court judgement.

Now, after that Shri Ramjanambhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust began the construction of the Ram temple in March 2020.

The Ramjanambhoomi Teerth Kshetra was set up to build a grand temple and carry out the Bhumipujan on 5th August.

Ayodhya now emerged as a place of Hindu pilgrimage.

Rama and Ramayana are considered among the greatest epic in Hinduism.

Now, we all Indians are excited and eagerly waiting for a new Rama temple and worshipped Lord Rama.
