On the site of the birth of Lord Rama, one of the most important avatars of Lord Vishnu, stood a magnificent temple devoted to Him.  However, Babur, a fifteenth Mogul invader, who brutalized India and destroyed temples in his zeal to spread Islam destroyed the temple and in its place - a structure he called Babri Masjid.

For centuries Hindus tried to recover this auspicious site.  Legal challenges were filed and were unresolved for decades.   Hindus presented volumes of historical and archeological data to prove the existence of Shree Ramjanmabhoomi Temple.  In fact, for at least 70 years no Moslem had prayed in that mosque, whereas Hindus continued circumambulating around this site, despite it being a mosque.

Finally, in what is now widely accepted as India's second freedom struggle, on December 6, 1992 the Babri Masjid was brought down and icon representing Lord Rama, was installed and worshipped.
