Was there a Ram Mandir?

There is archaeological evidence that there was a temple beneath the Babri structure.

The very obvious question that everybody has is, was there ever a Ram Temple beneath the Babri Masjid structure. It is not anybody’s mere figment of imagination that the holy site is where Lord Rama took birth. A movement that has been silently going on for over 480 years now is not based on falsehood.

Infact, there is enough evidence in the form of archaeological proof, literary evidence in ancient languages and the images of the excavation are a testimony to the existence of temple structures at the Shri Rama Janmabhoomi site.


Archaeological Survey of India’s findings

The Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) after extensive excavations during 12 March 2003 to 7 August 2003 published a report that supports the existence of a temple structure at the Shri Rama Janmabhoomi site that was razed down to build Babari structure.

Interestingly, the report also states that during the first millennium B.C, while there were no structural activities, culture has been represented by terracotta figurines of female deities with archaic features. It is anybody’s guess that if a place of worship has idols and figurines, which place of worship are we referring to here.

Here is an excerpt of the findings that we thought might interest our readers.

While there is archaeological proof that Shri Rama Janamabhoomi is the holy site of the Hindus, it is no hidden fact that globally, history has sought evidence and proof from works of literature. In case you wish to browse through the literary evidence, please read here.
