Magnificent Views Of The Ram Temple Before The Consecration Ceremony

Ayodhya: As the historic town gets ready to welcome Lord Ram for the newly constructed Ram Temple’s consecration ceremony, Ayodhya is a hive of activity.
Set to begin at 12:20 pm, the ‘Pran Pratishtha’ of the idol of Ram Lalla, the infant Lord Ram, is expected to attract participants from many backgrounds.

This momentous occasion is likely to be attended by representatives of major spiritual and religious groups, indigenous communities, and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, among a host of prominent personalities.

Standing 380 feet long, 250 feet wide, and 161 feet tall, the magnificent Ram Temple is adorned with 392 pillars and 44 doorways.

According to the Shri Ram Janmbhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust, which is in charge of monitoring the temple’s construction, the consecration ceremonies, which began on January 16 from the Saryu river, are scheduled to conclude in the afternoon during the “abhijeet muhurta.”

Fourteen couples from various regions of India will preside over the ‘Pran Pratishtha’ and serve as “hosts” for the consecration of the new 51-inch idol of Ram Lalla, which was sculpted by Arun Yogiraj from Mysuru.

There is a sense of religious euphoria across the whole city, which is decorated with flowers and festive lighting.

Ayodhya has strict security measures in place, including 10,000 CCTV cameras and artificial intelligence-equipped drones as part of a multi-layered security protection. Controlled traffic is ensured by movable barriers with barbed wire, particularly during VVIP movements.

Distinguished invitees to the historic event include a select group of 506 A-list celebrities, including cricket star Sachin Tendulkar, business moguls Mukesh Ambani and Gautam Adani, and Bollywood icon Amitabh Bachchan. Notably, leaders of the opposition have chosen not to participate, and the Congress has called the gathering a “BJP-RSS affair.”
