Of all the Holy Places in Ayodhya, Babri Masjid-Ram Janam Bhumi has been the subject of the greatest media attention and coverage. Ayodhya's association with Lord Ram is almost legendary. Revered and venerated as the best ruler that the land was blessed with, this epic hero's position is akin to that of a God. Ram Janam Bhumi is the spot which is believed to be his birthplace and here also stood Babri Masjid, a fine mosque built by Babar. The Babri Masjid no longer stands in its former magnificence. It has been demolished and only rubbles can be seen. The shrine, however, is still there at a distance of just about 50 m from it. One has to make way through narrow lanes to reach it. Here Ram is worshipped by his ardent followers. Time will answer best as to what is to happen in the future, this is the present status as of now. It is held as sacred by the Hindus as well as the Muslims.
