    The location of the Babri mosque is neither owned by Muslims or Hindus. It was a Buddhist shrine first.

    It was a animist ceremonial sight where people congregated during eclipses!

    Lurker Baba,

    My contention has no proof that I can cite. Ancient folklore under the mahua tree with the Santhals!

    However, I am awaiting eagerly for the Buddhist one!

    Which map shows temples and their religious origin?

    Do let us know so that we are educated.

    I am going to fork this into a new thread to prevent offtopic discussion. You'll have to give proof

    wait

    Ayodhya [​IMG] pronunciation (help·info) (Sanskrit: अयोध्या, Urdu: ایودھیا, IAST Ayodhyā) is an ancient city of India in the Faizabad district of Uttar Pradesh. In a result of rapid settlement and development Ayodhya has been merged to Faizabad city. Ayodhya is described as the birth place of the Hindu Bhagwan (God) Rama and Bhagwan Swaminarayan. It used to be the capital of the ancient Kosala Kingdom. This Hindu holy city is described as early as in the Hindu Epics. Ayodhya has an average elevation of 93 metres (305 feet).

    The name comes from the Sanskrit root yudh, meaning "fight" or "wage war," and it translates to either "not to be fought" or, less literally, "unconquerable." During the time of Gautama Buddha the city was called Ayojjhā in Pali and Ayodhyā in Sanskrit.

    Kosala kingdom

    Kosala Proper or Uttara Kosala is the kingdom of the celebrated personality of Treta Yuga, Raghava Rama. Ayodhya was its capital, presently in Faizabad district, Uttar Pradesh. Rama's sons Lava and Kusha inherited parts of this kingdom. Lava ruled from the city called Sravasti and Kusa from the city called Kushavati. A colony of Kosala kings existed in Madhya Pradesh. It was called Dakshina Kosala. Rama's mother Kausalya was from this kingdom. King Rama extended his influence up to the island-kingdom of Lanka situated in the southern ocean. He had friendly relations with the southern kingdom of forest dwellers (Vanaras) called Kishkindha.

    Kosala kingdom came under control of Asoka the great hence it was a Buddist city!

    At Ayodhya several religions have grown and prospered simultaneously and at different periods. Remnants of Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Islam can still be found in Ayodhya.

    It is time that some facts are forked to substantiate the claims made.

    The Animist theory has no proof since it is folklore and word of mouth!

    Now comes the question.

    Which came first - Hindu Epics or Buddhism?

    What is the connection?

    The ones who came first, built places of worship first.

    well Asoka controlled the land so naturally it should be bustling with Buddhist people!

    No one disputes that.

    But the issue that you raised is that it is a Buddhist temple.
