Shree Rama janmabhoomiThe Itihasa (Ramayana and Mahabharata) and the Purana are called the 5th Veda [Ref: Bhagavata Purana 3.12.39; Shiva Purana 5.43.8]. Purana are important scriptures that contain our recorded history [Ref: Matsya Purana 53.63; Valmiki Ramayana 6.116, 6.119, 7.72, 7.97]. All this simply means that the Purana are ancient and authentic sources of information, which are relevant in the present context.
