The largest mosque is a replacement for Babri Masjid with a capacity to accommodate 9,000 worshippers. It is worth noting the property in Ayodhya was a disputed property however as per the resolution passed by the Supreme Court after 4 years the Land can be used for mosque construction.
In 2019, the Supreme Court directed the government to provide an alternative 5-acre land to construct a mosque and granted the land to Ram Janmabhoomi Trust.

These facilities aim to serve the underprivileged from all communities in India
Architect Imran Shaikh called upon the community to contribute through donations, labor, and skills to support the construction of these additional facilities.
The goal is to create a complex that caters to the community’s religious needs and provides essential services for society’s welfare.
The mosque will be constructed by the Indo-Islamic Cultural Foundation Trust on land allocated in Dhannipur village, approximately 22 km away from the original location of the Babri Masjid.
Zufar Farooqi, chairman of the UP Sunni Central Waqf Board, expressed excitement about the new design, commenting on its elegant traditional looks.
