The process of construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya is in the final stage. Meanwhile, some people of the city raised the question that the place where Ram temple is proposed to be built, there are old tombs on 5 acres of land. In such a situation, it would not be appropriate to build a temple there. The chief priest of Ram temple in Ayodhya says that there was no cemetery on this land. Yes, in earlier times there were tombstones of sage sages. There has always been worship and shankhanad on this land, it purifies everything.
