The Nimrohi Akhara is a religious denomination of sadhus. The Nimrohi Akhara had moved the Faizabad civil court in 1959 claiming ownership of the Babri Masjid structure.

The court also said that the inner court yard will be handed over to the trust. Centre must set a trust with board of trustees within 3 months and a suitable plot of land measuring 5 acre shall be given to Sunni Waqf Board either by the state or by the Centre.
