New Delhi: Amid the ongoing dispute between Hindus and Muslims at the Gyanvapi mosque, a temple-like architecture has purportedly been found beneath an old mosque in Karnataka. It is reported that the mosque is situated on the outskirts of Mangaluru under the Dakshina Kannada district.
The architecture was found in the mosque of the Malali Market on April 21 when the renovation work was going on. The renovation was being carried out by the mosque authorities here.
After a few pieces of evidence of a temple were found, some groups claimed a temple used to exist here in the past. Reportedly, the district administration has been asked by Vishva Hindu Parishad leaders to stop the renovation for completing the documentation work.
