2 Hanuman Garhi temple is situated near Babri Masjid site. It states that the conflict was over the Hanuman Garhi temple near the disputed site and the last Nawab of Awad Wajid Ali Shah saved the temple from a band of Sunni Muslim fighters in 1855. In fact, the land on which Hanuman Garhi temple is located was donated by one of the Nawabs. The book says that the outnumbered Muslim fighters "gained the Masjid (Babri Masjid) where they were soon surrounded and cut to pieces." The clerics issued fatwas asking Nawab Wajid Ali Shah "to punish the 'wickedness' and 'enormities' of the infidels."
