Soon we can see Lord Rama's temple in Ayodhya. Before building Ram Mandir in Ayodhya we must have known the legend of Ram Mandir. Ayodhya Ram Mandir is a temple with a strange story. Many times this temple was built and many times demolished. So who built Ayodhya Ram Mandir first..?
Temple built by Lord Rama's son Kush
After Lord Rama took water burial, the city of Ayodhya began to decline. After seeing this, Lord Rama's son Kusha rebuilt Ayodhya. As the last king of the Surya dynasty, Maharaja Brihadbala took care of Ayodhya, the birthplace of Rama.
Vikramaditya discovered Ayodhya
During the Mahabharata war, Maharaja Brihadbala, the last king of the Surya dynasty, died at the hands of Abhimanyu. Even after this there was recognition among the people about the birthplace of Ram. And the names of God were chanted. But according to the available evidence, the city of Ayodhya lost its prestige as the days went by. According to history, the Ayodhya Rama Temple is said to have been built by Emperor Vikramaditya.
Vikramaditya saw the spectacle
According to evidence, Vikramaditya comes out of the palace for a stroll. Tired of wandering, Vikramaditya takes rest under a tree near the river Sarayu. On that occasion Vikramaditya sees Ayodhya. There is only forest. Later, when Vikramaditya made a search about the place, the sages and saints told him that it was the birthplace of Rama.
Vikramaditya built the temple
Realizing the grandeur of the place, Vikramaditya made other developments including a magnificent Rama temple, a pond, a palace and a well. After King Vikramaditya, many kings and royal families looked after the temple. And they also used to perform puja functions at this place.
Restoration of the temple by Pushyamitra
Pushyamitra, the first ruler of the Sunga royal dynasty, renovated the temple built at Rama's Janmabhoomi. An inscription is found in Ayodhya for Pushyamitra. It indicates that Ayodhya was the capital of Chandragupta II of the Gupta dynasty. Kalidasa also mentions the Rama temple. After Chandragupta II, many kings and emperors are said to have looked after the Rama temple.
Ayodhya Rama Mandir developed as a Buddhist center
Historians say that the Ayodhya Rama Mandir developed as a Buddhist center in Ayodhya around the 5th century. 5 Tirthankaras including Adinath have taken birth here. Later this place came to be known as Saket. A Hindu temple was built in the 5th to 7th century with at least 20 Buddhist temples. Then King Jayanchand of Kanauj removes the name of Emperor Vikramaditya and writes his name.
Construction of a mosque on the site of a temple
After King Jayachand's death in the battle of Panipat, many invaders attacked Mathura in Kashi, including Ayodhya, razing the temple and killing the priests there. But it was not until the 14th century that they were able to demolish the Ram Mandir at Ayodhya. It is said that there was a magnificent Rama temple during Sikandar Lodi's reign. The Mughals came to power after the 14th century and during the 1527-28 period the magnificent Rama temple was razed and a mosque was built on the site. And then on August 5, 2020, the construction work of Ayodhya Ram Mandir started again.

Top 10 innocent (harmless) snakes in the world
The term harmless snakes usually describes non-venomous snakes that are not very dangerous to people. These snakes are usually not hostile towards humans, and they are not able to bite someone with enough venom to inflict harm. This group includes many snake species, and through managing rodent populations, they contribute significantly to ecosystems. Many types of garter snakes, corn snakes, rat snakes and king snakes are common examples of innocuous snakes. Even though these snakes are not poisonous, handling any snake should be done so carefully and with consideration for the animal. Furthermore, the word harmless does not preclude these snakes from biting if they sense danger or are cornered; nonetheless, the venom in their bites is not particularly dangerous.
