The same video is being shared on YouTube claiming it shows the Ram Mandir
BOOM also received the viral clip on our WhatsApp helpline number (7700906111) inquiring if it is from Ram Temple in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh.
BOOM found that the viral video is from Chuli Jain Temple at the Halvad - Dhangadhra highway road in Chuli, Gujarat.
A reverse image search on a video key frame, showed search results for Chuli Jain Temple in Gujarat and not Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh as being claimed.
We found the same video uploaded on June 25, 2021, with the description, "Chuli jain temple is situated at Halvad dhangadara highway Gujrat. 12 km from dhangadara city toward Halavad. See this wonderful carving on stones. Which some one can rarely see. Very rare and beautiful art,* but how this will be protected."
We also found other videos of the same temple with people praising its exterior design on the sculptures.
A search for Chuli Jain Temple on Google Maps shows that it is in Gujarat as mentioned in the videos.
On comparing the viral video with the original video and other video shot at the Chuli Jain Temple, we found that both the locations match.
Additionally, the construction work of the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya is still ongoing and has not been completed.
