For the mosque, the state government has allotted 5-acre plot after the Supreme Court's verdict on the Ayodhya dispute case. The mosque will follow the futuristic design and not stick to the traditional architectural aesthetics of a mosque. Instead, it will be an egg-shaped structure without any dome or minarets.

Modern technology has been used to create the design of the mosque. “The two-storeyed mosque will not have any minaret. Solar power will be installed in the mosque, and around 2,000 people will be able to offer ‘namaaz’ at the same time,” said Prof SM Akhtar of Jamia Millia Islamia, who is also Lucknow architect-cum-town planner and one of the presenters of the project.

The hospital would have all advanced facilities and focus on the needs of malnourished children and expecting mothers, as per IICF.

The structure is anticipated to finish in two years, as per IICF secretary, Athar Husain. “The mosque will be eco-friendly, and plants from across the world will be planted,” he further added. “The hospital will be a different building, which will a ground floor plus four floors.”

Husain also told that the mosque will be named after a nawab or a king. He personally recommended a name- Dhannipur Masjid.

It was on December 6,1992 the mosque was demolished by the ‘kar sevaks’ who claimed that an ancient Ram temple stood at the same site.

On August 5, 2020, the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi laid the foundation of temple in Ayodhya in an elaborate ceremony. The construction work of the temple would be finished within three to three and a half years.
