Claim:

Nita Ambani has announced to donate 3 gold crowns to Ayodhya's Ram Mandir.

Fact Check:

The Logical Indian checked and found no media reports of Nita Ambani donating crowns to Ram Mandir.

Fact Crescendo, a fact-checking website contacted the media department of Reliance India, who refuted the viral claim. They said that Nita Ambani has not made any such donations to Ayodhya Ram temple.

We also called and asked Shri Champat Rai, General Secretary of Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teertha Kshetra, who also said that he is not aware of any such donations made to Ram temple. He also said that each donation is equally valued for Ram temple but he has no idea of donation made by Nita Ambani.

Hence, the viral claim is fake.
