The Allahabad High Court will pronounce its verdict in the Gyanvapi Mosque case on August 3. The Archeological Survey of India's (ASI) inspection has been stayed till then.
Chief Justice Pritinker Diwaker heard the matter in the afternoon session and reserved his verdict till August 3.
The high court was hearing a plea against a Varanasi district court order directing the ASI to conduct a survey to determine if the Gyanvapi mosque was built upon a temple.
The court heard the arguments from Anjuman Intezamia Masjid, which manages the mosque, and the Hindu side. Senior ASI officials were also present in the courtroom.
The high court on Wednesday said that it would take up the matter at 3:30 pm on Thursday, but Chief Justice Diwakar started hearing the case 15 minutes in advance and reserved its order before concluding the day's proceedings at 5 pm. (With PTI inputs)
