Remains of ancient temples, pillar, idols of deities were unearthed from Ayodhya site while digging the land for levelling purposes. As per reports, a Shivlinga was also unearthed and pictures of all the same made it to the web.
A five-foot Shivlinga, seven pillars of black touchstone, six pillars of red sandstone, structures of flowers and broken idols of deities were found at the site, said general secretary of Shree Ramjanma Bhoomi Teertha Kshetra Trust and senior VHP leader Champat Rai.
However, Champat Rai, who represented the Muslim side in the Supreme court during the hearing of Ayodhya issue, maintained that the things found could be of Babri Masjid demolished in 1992.
Jilani went on to add that all the same could also be a political gimmick by the temple trust eyeing the upcoming election in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar.

Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust had earlier tweeted that “The work started on May 11, 2020. Since then many objects of archaeological importance like flowers made of stone, Kalash, Aamalak, Dorjamb, have been discovered during excavation.”
Howevere, the officials from the archaeological department didn’t immediately comment on the authenticity of the findings. The ASI officials said that they have learned about the findings from media reports. However, before commenting on the same, they will take them over to study their origin and age.
Earlier, archaeologists have found many more structures beneath the Ram Janamabhoomi, which they presented during the hearing of Ayodhya case on Nov 9, 2019.
