NewsMobile fact-checked the above post and found the claim to be false.
We put the image through Reverse Image Search and found the same picture on Reddit. The picture was captioned, “Swaminarayan Akshardham Complex (Akshardham Temple) Noida Mor, Pandav Nagar, New Delhi, Delhi, India. ”

We then looked for some pictures of Akshardham temple on Google and found that they were similar to the picture in the above post.

When we compared one of the images posted on the official website of Akshardham temple to the post in question, we found that both the images have similar architectural design and floor patterns.

Even the satellite images available on Google Earth shows the same design and flooring.

Moreover, when we searched for the proposed design of the Ram temple in Ayodhya, we found a report by the Indian Express dated July 26, that featured a computerised 3D view of the Ram temple.
You can read the reports by India Today and Times Now on the same here and here.
Hence, from the above information, it is clear that the post in question is false.
