Stone Writ Could Hold Key to Ayodhya

NEW DELHI, INDIA, Sept. 1, 2001: A 12th-century stone inscription recovered from the debris of the disputed structure at Ayodhya could hold the key to the resolution of the temple-mosque imbroglio. The 20-line inscription comprising 30 verses in Sanskrit was found embedded in the lower portion of a wall of the structure that was demolished on December 6, 1992. Experts believe it could provide conclusive proof of the existence of a Ram temple at the site in the 12th century and even earlier. The inscription was shown in photos in some publications at the time. It would be common for a temple to contain such an inscription detailing the date of construction and the reigning king.
