The reclamation of the Ram Janmabhoomi, the birthplace of Lord Ram, holds immense significance in the history and the socio-political landscape of India.
This reclamation process culminated in the construction of the Ram Mandir (temple) in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh, marking a momentous event for Hindus. To understand this phenomenon, we must delve into the historical and cultural context surrounding Ram Janmabhoomi and its reclamation.
Ram Janmabhoomi has been the birthplace of Lord Ram. The dispute over the site dates back to the 16th century when the Mughal emperor Babur constructed a mosque, the Babri Masjid, on this site in 1528. Over the centuries, the site became a focal point of religious and political tension.
Dating from the year 1528 to 1934, 76 wars were fought to reclaim Ram Janmabhoomi.
