Short Description

The book chronicles the historical and legal journey surrounding the construction of the Ram Mandir at Lord Ram's birthplace in Ayodhya. It begins with the establishment of the Vishnu-Hari Temple in the 12th century and details the events leading to the construction of the Babri Masjid by Mughal King Babar in the 16th century. The narrative unfolds through the centuries, highlighting the persistent efforts of Hindus to reclaim and worship at the sacred site. The book delves into the legal battles, often lesser-known, that ensued between Hindus and Muslims, resulting in significant sacrifices. Justice Kamleshwar Nath, at 96 years old, provides a detailed account of this historical struggle. Endorsements by figures like Dr. Mohan Bhagwat and Shri Champatraiji emphasize the importance of preserving this chapter in Bharat's history. The book is hailed as the most authentic account of the legal battle for the Ram Mandir, offering a unique perspective from a jurist intimately involved in the court proceedings. Dr. Neerja A Gupta, an educationist and Vice-Chancellor of Gujarat University, commends the book as a milestone in documenting the emotional and spiritual dimensions of the prolonged legal battle, spanning 500 years.

Product Details


At Ram’s birthplace, a Hindu temple had existed since the 12th Century AD, known as the Vishnu-Hari Temple. In early 16th Century, the Mughal King Babar launched his 5th invasion into India in 1526. He marched to Ayodhya in 1528 with his army led by Mir Baqi, who erected a mosque at the site of the temple using Temple material in the walls. The mosque came to be known as the Babri Masjid.

The Hindus, nevertheless, continued their efforts to perform their worship of Ram’s birthplace and seize the premises of the Babri Masjid. This exercise was not easy: it involved several battles from time to time between Hindus and Muslims, in which many lives were lost.

This book brings to readers the legal battles (including the momentous ones among them that are so far less-known) to construct the Ram Mandir at Ram’s birthplace and to continue the tradition and faith of Hindus as it prevailed from time immemorial.


“The saga of the struggle for the liberation of Shri Ram Janmbhumi is an important and glorious chapter in the history of the Renaissance of Bharat in modern times… Hence, its detailed description penned by Justice Kamleshwar Nath — a laborious and tedious task for a man of 96 years — is a very relevant and important book. This chapter of our history must always remain in our memory, should be frequently narrated, and should be retold time and again for generations together. Justice Kamleshwar Nath’s efforts will then be well utilised and properly gratified.”

—Dr. Mohan Bhagwat

Sarsanghchalak, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh This is the most authentic book I have ever come across about the legal battle for the Ram Mandir.

“When ‘they’ decided to demolish ‘Ram Mandir’, ‘they’ didn’t only demolish a structure, ‘they’ assaulted the entire conscience of Bharat. The day the first brick fell, the yearning to fix it back was born as well. Who knew that the yearning was destined to be extended through the generations and it would be only as late as 500 years that the yearning would be fulfilled… The long journey in court has never been considered with emotional and spiritual quotient… This book comes from the mind, thoughts, and pen of a jurist, who has first-hand experience of this court journey for Ram Mandir. This book shall become a milestone in the field of documentation of a long legal battle and winning it.” Dr. Neerja A Gupta
