  • Hello friends some of you must not be knowing detail about this place. So see below and don't forget to hit like. πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡ Ram Janmabhoomi (literally, "Rama's birthplace") is the name given to the site that many Hindus believe to be the birthplace of Rama, the 7th avatar of the Hindu deity Vishnu. Ram Janmabhoomi Ram Janmabhoomi is located in Uttar Pradesh Ram JanmabhoomiRam Janmabhoomi Ram Janmabhoomi (Uttar Pradesh) The location of the disputed site Location Ayodhya Region Uttar Pradesh Coordinates 26.7956Β°N 82.1943Β°E Site notes Ownership Disputed The Ramayana states that the location of Rama's birthplace is on the banks of the Sarayu river in the city of Ayodhya. A section of Hindus claim that the exact site of Rama's birthplace is where the Babri Masjid once stood in the present-day Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh. According to this theory, the Mughals demolished a Hindu shrine that marked the spot, and constructed a mosque in its place. People opposed to this theory state that such claims arose only in the 18th century, and that there is no evidence for the spot being the birthplace of Rama. The political, historical and socio-religious debate over the history and location of the Babri Mosque, and whether a previous temple was demolished or modified to create it, is known as the Ayodhya dispute. In 1992, the demolition of Babri Masjid by Hindu nationalists triggered widespread Hindu-Muslim violence. Since then, the archaeological excavations have indicated the presence of a temple beneath the mosque rubble. Several other sites, including places in other parts of India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Nepal, have been proposed as birthplaces of Rama.
  • Ayodhya is regarded as the most holy place for Hindus. We visited Ayodhya for 2 days. The city is very busy as with all pilgrim sites, but it was a historic event seeing the birth place of Lord Rama. In order to go to the actual Raam Janam Bhoomi, you need to walk through a very secured path, surrounded by metallic walls and fence. This is very high security zone and you will see police and military checking your bags, pockets etc. There is nothing to worry. The actual birthplace of Lord Rama is fascinating to see. At present it has a small temple, with Lord Rama's shrine. You cannot go very close, but will need to see it from a distance of 10 metres or so. It will be a pleasant experience, especially for Hindus. You can also see the Saryu River from there. The market is busy and sells lots of things.
  • Babri Masjid Spot... 400 years old Mughal Architecture.. National Heritage..
  • A section of historians, such as R. S. Sharma , state that such claims of Babri Masjid site being the birthplace of Rama sprang up only after the 18th century. Sharma states that Ayodhya emerged as a place of Hindu pilgrimage only in medieval times, since ancient texts do not mention it as a pilgrim centre. For example, chapter 85 of the Vishnu Smriti lists 52 places of pilgrimage, which do not include Ayodhya. Sharma also notes that Tulsidas, who wrote the Ramcharitmanas in 1574 at Ayodhya, does not mention it as a place of pilgrimage. Rambhadracharya , on the other hand, has quoted a work of Tulsidas known as Dohā Śataka and is recorded in Allahbad High Court's verdict which clearly states the demolition of a temple, and building of a mosque. Many critics also claim that the present-day Ayodhya was originally a Buddhist site, based on its identification with Saketa described in Buddhist texts. According to historian Romila Thapar , ignoring the Hindu mythological accounts, the first historic mention of the city dates back to the 7th century, when the Chinese pilgrim Xuanzang described it as a Buddhist site.
