In this article, you will find one of the recent cases that are Gyanvapi Case where there is a dispute over a temple or mosque. However, Gyanvapi is a place located in Banaras, Uttar Pradesh. When we go into history we will find that there was a temple that belongs to Lord Shiva known as the Vishweshwar temple. In addition to it, it is discussed how the development took place and how the mosque was built after deconstructing the temple.
