Sree Ram Janmabhoomi Mandir: A Historic Landmark in India's Heritage

Updated On: 25-Feb-2024

Ayodhya Ram Mandir

Ram Janmabhoomi is the site that is believed to be the birthplace of Lord Rama, the seventh incarnation of Lord Vishnu. According to the Hindu epic Ramayana, Rama was born in Ayodhya, a city on the banks of the Sarayu river, to King Dashrath and Queen Kaushalya.

He had three brothers, Bharat, Lakshman and Shatrughan, who were born to Dashrath's other wives, Kaikeyi and Sumitra. Rama's birth anniversary is celebrated as Ram Navami, a major festival in Hinduism.

The site of Ram Janmabhoomi has been a matter of dispute for centuries, as it is also the location of the Babri Masjid, a mosque that was built by a Mughal commander in the 16th century. Some Hindus claim that the mosque was constructed over a demolished Hindu temple that marked Rama's birthplace.

The mosque was demolished by Hindu activists in 1992, sparking communal riots across the country. The legal battle over the ownership of the land reached the Supreme Court of India, which delivered its verdict in 2019.

The court ruled that the land should be handed over to a trust to build a Hindu temple, while a separate plot of land should be given to the Muslim community to build a mosque.

The construction of the Ram temple began in 2020, after a grand ceremony that was attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other dignitaries. The temple is expected to be completed by 2023, coinciding with the 25th anniversary of the demolition of the Babri Masjid.

The temple is designed to be a magnificent structure that will symbolize the faith and devotion of millions of Hindus who revere Rama as an ideal king and a righteous person.
