Ram Janmabhoomi (राम जन्मभूमि) refers to a tract of land in the North Indian city of Ayodhya which is claimed by Hindu nationalists as the birthplace of Rama.


It is believed that, prior to 1528, a temple stood at this site and that in 1528 the temple was demolished on the orders of Mughal invader Babur and a mosque was built on its ruins. This mosque came to be known as the Babri Masjid.

Movement of VHP

A movement was launched in 1984 by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) eventually leading to the destruction of the building on the morning of December 6 1992 by radical Hindu activists.

The VHP wants to erect a temple dedicated to Ram Lala (infant Ram) at this spot. Many Muslim organizations, on the other hand strongly oppose the building of the temple.
