Old 3D animation video of a Jain temple is falsely claimed as the design of Ram Mandir at Ayodhya


A post in which a video claiming to be the design of the Ram Temple which is to be built in Ayodhya is being widely shared on social media. Through this article, let’s fact-check the claim.

The archived version of the post can be found here.

Claim: Design of Ram Mandir which is supposed to be built in Ayodhya.

Fact: The original video on Kens Studio YouTube channel is uploaded on 03 June 2014, whereas the Supreme court verdict on Ram Mandir case is pronounced on 09 Nov 2019. Also, multiple news agencies have reported the supposed design of the temple which is different from the one shared in the post. Hence the claim made in the post is FALSE.

When we ran a search on YouTube using the keywords ‘3D animation temple’, we found a similar video on a channel named Kems Studio which was uploaded on 03 June 2014.

The Supreme Court verdict on Ayodhya’s Ram Mandir case is pronounced on 09 Nov 2019, years later than the earliest upload of the video found on YouTube. The original Supreme Court judgement can be read here.

When we reached out to Kems Studio through phone they said that the design which is going viral is actually designed for a Jain temple in Andhra Pradesh. Also, they explicitly said that the design is not related to Ram Mandhir in Ayodhya. Even in the beginning of the video it is showed that the location of the temple as Tirupati. Also, in the video we can see many Jain idols.

Multiple news agencies have recently reported that the Ram Mandir model designed three decades ago by Chandrakant Sompura (with some modifications) will be the design of the Ayodhya Ram Mandir. These news reports can be found here and here.

To sum it up, old 3D animation temple design is falsely shared as the design of the Ram Mandir which is to be built in Ayodhya.
