Fact Check: Video Of Chuli Jain Temple In Gujarat Viral As Ram Mandir In Ayodhya

A video clip of a temple is viral on social media claiming it to be the exterior facade of the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya. 

The video is shared on Facebook with a caption in Hindi that translates to, “A glimpse of the unique artwork of Shri Ram temple under construction in Ayodhya Namo Namo.”

NewsMobile fact-checked the above claim and found it to be MISLEADING.

A simple Reverse Image Search of keyframes from the video directed us to several YouTube channels that carried the same viral video. The video description reads, “Chuli Jain temple is situated at Halvad dhangadara highway Gujarat. 12 km from  dhangadara city toward Halavad.”

Searching further, we found a tweet that also carried the same viral video stating that “This Chuli Jain temple is situated at Halvad-Dhrangadhra Highway in Gujarat. See these wonderful carvings on stone.”

A keyword search led us to a travel blog that carried images of Chuli Jain Temple in Gujarat. Here’s a comparison of some images from the travel blog with screengrabs from the viral video.

We also searched for Chuli Jain Temple on Google Maps and it showed that the temple is indeed situated in Gujarat as mentioned in the blog and YouTube videos. 

Moreover, the construction work of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya is still going on. It is clearly visible from a tweet by Shri Ram Janmbhoomi Teerth Kshetra on May 31, 2021 that the foundation of the temple has not yet been completed. 

Thus, it is evident that a video of Chuli Jain Temple in Gujarat is being shared as Ram Mandir in Ayodhya. Therefore, the viral claim is misleading.
