Template:Italic title Ayodhya: The Case Against the Temple is a book by Koenraad Elst that was published in 2002 by Voice of India.

Elst has written several books on the Ayodhya debate and on the Ram Janmabhoomi controversy. Koenraad Elst reiterates his view that the Babri Mosque was built on an ancient Hindu temple, the Ram Janmabhoomi. The thrust of his argument is that "Future historians will include the no-temple argument of the 1990s as a remarkable case study in their surveys of academic fraud and politicized scholarship."

Elst also writes in detail about claims that certain Hindu rulers, including Pusyamitra Sunga, were iconoclasts; evidence to that effect had been previously presented by Romila Thapar, Richard Eaton and others.

Other books by Elst about the debate include Ayodhya and After: Issues Before Hindu Society and Ayodhya, The Finale.
