In Ayodhya, Ram Navami festivities go off. Here’s what we know about Ram Lalla’s “Surya Tilak.”

On the occasion of Ram Navami, Ayodhya is seeing a massive influx of devotees, with the Ram temple doors opening for pilgrims at 3:30 a.m. on Wednesday.

The darshan duration has been extended by the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust in honor of the event, but no special darshan will be held on that day. Additionally, the prior passes are no longer valid.

Darshan will start at 3:30 am at the Brahma Muhurta on Ram Navami festival, according to Trust General Secretary Champat Rai. At five in the morning is Ram Lalla’s Shringaar Aarti.

The curtain will be drawn for a little while when food is offered to God. The darshan sequence will run till eleven p.m. Following this, Bhog and Shayan Aarti will take place as usual.

On Ram Navami, prasads will be served at the temple’s exit after Shayan Aarti. If devotees leave their cell phones, shoes, slippers, large bags, and forbidden objects securely outside the temple, darshan will be made easier.

VIP darshan is now prohibited for one further day. There won’t be a VIP darshan till April 19 at this point.

In front of Birla Dharamshala, near the entrance to Shri Ram Janmabhoomi, under Sugriva Fort, the temple trust has established a passenger service center with public amenities. The devotees are provided with everything from treatment to seating arrangements.

All of the temple’s programs are shown live on LED screens at 100 locations around the Ayodhya Municipal Corporation.

For the event, the whole holy city has been decked up and lit up.

The Surya Tilak on Wednesday, when Ram Lalla’s forehead is illuminated by the sun, will be the focal point of the celebrations.

An intricate system of mirrors and lenses has enabled the god to wear his “Surya tilak”.

On Tuesday, a crew tested the system.

“Every Shri Ram Navami day, the main goal of the Surya Tilak initiative is to focus a ’tilak’ on the forehead of the Shri Ram idol. from noon on Shri Ram Navami in the Chaitra month each year, sunlight would be transported to Lord Ram’s forehead as part of the effort, according to Dr. SK Panigrahi, a scientist from CSIR-CBRI Roorkee who was involved in the research.
