Hindu’s 500-year wait is over as Ram Mandir in Ayodhya will be inaugurated on 22 January 2024 under the BJP government. The temple is believed to be the birthday place of Lord Rama who was the avatar of Vishnu. In 2019, the Supreme Court gave a verdict to give this disputed land to Hindus after getting enough evidence. Babri Masjid was constructed after demolishing the mandir in the 16th century.

Babar was in the raid of demolishing Temples in Northern India in the 16th century. At that time Babri Masjid was created after destroying Ramkot Temple. On 5 August 2020, Indian Prime Minister  Narendra Modi participated in the Bhumi Pujan for the commencement of construction. The chief architect of the temple was Chandrakant Sompura, with the help of his two architect sons, Nikhil Sompura and Ashish Sompura.
