Several structures of Hindu Gods, Shivlings excavated from Ram Janmabhoomi site

General Secretary of Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust, Champat Rai, on Thursday, claimed that several artefacts and structures of Hindu gods and goddesses and pillars have been unearthed from the temple site in Ayodhya. The structures were found during the land-leveling work. 

The excavations include two Shivlings - four-foot structure and another one from Kuber Teela, seven pillars of black touchstone, six red sandstone pillars, and several disfigured statues of gods and goddesses.
Sources reveal that the site would be subjected to soil testing to determine its age and several other factors.
Since the work resumed on May 11, the metal barricades that were erected around the makeshift temple and the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) camp have been removed. About three JCBs, a crane, and 10 workers have been deployed and all social distancing measures have been ensured.
The work at the site started after due permission from the district authorities and after the Supreme Court directed the Centre in November 2019, to hand over the site for the construction of the temple. The work of building the temple was started, but had to be halted due to the nationwide lockdown.
