A viral video claims Jain temple of Gujarat as exterior of Ram Mandir, Ayodhya

Spread the truth:

A video of the exterior of Ram Mandir has been viral on social media lately, falsely shared as the exterior sculpture of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh. In the whole 3 minutes 54 seconds video, a man is seen cleaning the sculptures of the temple. The caption of the video says,” Exterior sculpture planned at Sri Ram temple, Ayodhya.” The video has circulated on various platforms.




A similar video has been shared on youtube claiming that the exterior is of Ram Mandir, Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh.


The viral video is of a Jain Temple, not Ram Mandir as claimed.

The exterior sculpture of the building is of Chuli Jain Temple at the Halvad – Dhangadhra highway road in Chuli, Gujarat, and not Ram Mandir, Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh. 

While searching the truth about the video, we did the reverse google image search and found out a similar video that has been uploaded on youtube with the name- Chuli Jain Temple, Gujrat.

Also, a similar video that was shared with the claim of Ram Mandir is already uploaded on Youtube with a different title- Chuli Jain temple in which the same man is shown cleaning the sculpture in the video.

Also, google maps show Chuli Jain temple is situated in Gujarat as mentioned in the above youtube videos.

Further, while searching more on google maps we came across a similar video on google maps with Chuli Jain temple.


We also searched about the current construction situation of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya and the Twitter page of Shri Ram Janmbhoomi Teerth Kshetra had already put up an update about the construction of Ram Mandir on 31st May 2021 with the caption- श्री रामजन्मभूमि परिसर में नींव के लिए लगातार चली खुदाई के बाद विशेषज्ञों की सलाह से यह निर्णय किया गया कि नींव भराई का कार्य Roller Compacted Concrete तकनीक से किया जाएगा। लगभग 1,20,000 स्क्वायर फ़ीट क्षेत्र में अभी 4 परत बिछाई जा चुकी हैं। कुल 40-45 ऐसी ही परत बिछाई जाएंगी।

Translation: “After continuous excavation for the foundation in Shri Ramjanmabhoomi complex, it was decided with the advice of experts that the foundation filling would be done by Roller Compacted Concrete technology. So far 4 layers have been laid in an area of about 1,20,000 sq. ft. A total of 40-45 such layers will be laid.”
