Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh's Ram Mandir consecrated ceremony is going on today. This is the national talk now. The entire nation is excited about this grand ceremony.
However, many people said that this ceremony will take place before the entire construction of the temple is completed. Nripendra Mishra, Chairman of the Ayodhya Ram Temple Construction Committee, has explained this.
It is believed that Rama was born in Ayodhya. In this case, Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the foundation stone to build a temple for him on August 5, 2021. 360 feet long, 235 feet wide, 161 feet high, 3 floors, five domes, a tower, and 360 pillars, the temple is built in traditional Nagara style at a cost of Rs.1,100 crore. In this temple today, the idol of baby Rama is consecrated.
Nirupendra Mishra, Chairman of the Temple Construction Committee, explains the Ayodhya Ram Temple constructions.
The consecration will take place this afternoon from 12.29.08 to 12.30.32. The plinth of the idol of baby Rama is 3 feet high. The idol is made of Makrana marble and has a gold shield.
The temple Kumbabishekam is being conducted in the presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Chief Mohan Bhagwat, UP Governor Anandiben Patel, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, and Temple Trust Chairman Mahant Nritya Gopal Das. Prominent leaders, screen stars, and sportspersons nationwide participate in this event.
After the Kumbabhishekam of this temple, about 3 lakh devotees are expected to visit the temple every day. Various states have declared a public holiday on January 22 when Kumbabhishekam occurs. Besides, LED screens have been placed in various temples in BJP-ruled states to watch the Kumbabhishek ceremony live.
Nripendra Mishra, the Temple Construction Committee Chairman, said, "Construction work will start the day after the temple's Kumbabhishek ceremony. Seven more temples are to be built in the Ayodhya temple complex. We are working with enthusiasm to complete the entire temple this year."
