There was also a Ram Katha Mandap located and the western gate of the temple was referred to as the Shingar Mandap. In this Shingar Mandap, some symbols like Lotus and Swastik are also found which belong to Hindu Culture. These are the reasons why the survey team wants to enter Gyanvapi Complex and take a video proof.
