Truth

Upon doing a Google Reverse Image Search on the photo in the posts, we came across an article by Amar Ujala which said that the Shivalinga belonged to a temple called ‘Mathiya Devi Mandir’ in UP’s Farrukhabad. The article was published on 27 July, 2016.

 

 

According to the article, the renovation work in the temple in 2016 had brought to light the fact that a part of the Shivalinga had been underground so far. The Shivlinga is 250 years old.

According to Hindustan Times, land-leveling work has indeed been going on at the Ram Janmabhoomi site in Ayodhya, having started on 11 May. Many artifacts have been found at the site but, the image that has been going viral is not from Ayodhya but Farrukhabad, and of 2016.

 

 

Hence it is established that the Shivlinga was not found in the excavation in Ayodhya. It is to be noted that the Shivlinga in the image belongs to a temple in Farrukhabad, in Uttar Pradesh.
