The remains of a temple have been found at India's most controversial religious site, Ayodhya, reports say.
A Hindu lawyer said the disclosure was made in a report compiled by a team of Indian Government archaeologists excavating at the site.
The team, from the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI), was ordered to excavate the site to help clarify a bitter dispute between Hindus and Muslims about whether a Hindu temple should be built at the site.
