The devotees participating in this Parikrama also paid their homage to Ramlala, located at the Ram Janmabhoomi. Let us tell you that there has been a long-standing dispute over the Ram Janmabhoomi. According to experts, Ram Mandir was previously established at the place where the Babri Masjid is currently located. Evidence of this was found during the excavation held at Babri Masjid, where statues of Lord Rama, Lord Hanuman etc. were found. 

Since then, there is an on-going debate over the construction of Ram Mandir on that land. However, no such final decision has been taken on this issue for a long time. Since the verdict rolled out by the Supreme Court is expected to come this month after the 5 & 14 Kosi Parikrama, the security arrangements have been made by the administration in Ayodhya.
