Why Ayodhya?

Ayodhya: Birthplace of Rama and Ram Rajya

The Ramayana states that the location of Rama’s birthplace is on the banks of the Sarayu River in a city called “Ayodhya”. Modern-day Ayodhya is in the north Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. 

But this is not just the story, there is more to it.

The Conflict and Historical Judgment

The Babri Masjid-Ram Janmabhoomi dispute, a decades-old conflict, reached a historic resolution in 2019 when the Supreme Court ruled in favour of the Ram Mandir’s construction.

The belief that the mosque was built on the ruins of a Hindu temple set the stage for all the conflicts and disputes that have followed ever since. Later on, the Babri Masjid’s demolition led to communal riots across the country, especially between the Hindus and Muslims. Finally, with a landmark judgment of the Supreme Court in favor of Ram Janmabhoomi and following ‘Bhoomi Pujan’ and the formation of the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra, the long saga came to an end. 

This decision marked a pivotal moment in Indian history, emphasizing unity and mutual respect.
