Claim:

The viral video is of Ayodhya railway station.

Fact Check:

The viral claim is false.

To begin our investigation, we started watching the video closely and found that the logo of Gujarat Tourism is visible in it at 00:33 seconds. Along with this, we also saw that there is a comment from a Twitter user on the video that this video is from Gandhinagar Railway Station.

We again watched the video carefully. A triangular-shaped tall building was seen in the video at a frame of 52 seconds. We found this building similar to the Mahatma Mandir in Gujarat. We searched Mahatma Mandir on Google, and we found exactly the same building which can be seen in one frame of the viral video.

When we did a reverse image search, we found the same video on a Facebook page named 'Ahmedabad - Himatnagar - Udaipur Broad Gauge Conversion', in which Gandhinagar railway station can be seen. Also, the video had a caption, "Gandhinagar Railway Station".

We also searched this video on YouTube. We came across many such videos, where the exact scene of the viral video and the Gandhi temple can be seen close by.


We also tried to get information related to Ayodhya railway station. According to the information available on the website of PIB, the Ayodhya railway station will be ready in the middle of 2021-22.
