1. Be honest and give the name of the person who had given such fake certificate.
2. You can get married again in Arya Samaj Mandir and you will get a lawful certificate.
3. I hope your wife does not file a complaint against you. Then there should be no problem as police will agree that you both should get married lawfully.

Anyway since you did not manufacture the document then you should not be put into trouble but you must lodge complaint of cheating agaisnt the person who was entrusted to register the marriage. In the meantime perform marriage as per Hindu rites and customs to save your wife from the clutch of her parents.

I agree with the suggestion of expert Mr.Rajendra Goyal. If your marriage was performed in a temple, there must be some proof of it including temple records and photographs. This is the full proof that your marriage is solumnized. Registration of marriage, fake registration certificate are are no way make your marriage invalid. That is a separate issue. If both of you are majors at the time of temple marriage, your marriage is valid. You can even now apply for registration before the concerned sub Registrar for registration. Consult the Registrar of Marriages Office.

If you have got any proof of marrriage (other than forged cretificate) then suggestion of Mt Goyal and Mr Jaggarao may help.
if no then my vies are clear.
you are also not clear:-
(I) what was gap between forged certificate and temple marriage.
(II) did you live together as husband and wife in-between period.
(III) when there as a certificate (which you believed to be valid one) then why thee was temple marriage. Did you feel necessity of temple marriage because you knew that certificate is bogus.
