Other pictures similar to the picture going viral can also be seen on the Swaminarayan Akshardham temple website.

We also found a photo was uploaded on Google Maps in July 2019. A similar photo was also found on easemytrip.com. It is clear that the photo going viral is not of the Ram temple in Ayodhya, but Swaminarayan Akshardham temple in Delhi.

Chandrakant Sompura, 77, has designed Akshardham temple of Delhi and Somnath temple of Gujarat.

Hence, the claim is FALSE.
