Key Features of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya

The Ram Janmbhoomi Mandir, also known as Ram Temple, was built in the traditional Nagara style. It is 380 feet long (east to west), 250 feet wide, and 161 feet tall. It is supported by 392 pillars and features 44 doorways.

The temple’s pillars and walls have finely carved representations of Hindu deities, gods, and goddesses. The idol of Ram Lalla is located in the main sanctum sanctorum on the ground level of the Ram temple.

Fourteen couples from various regions of the nation will be the ‘yajmaans’ (hosts) for the ‘pran-pratishtha’ of the new 51-inch idol of Ram Lalla. Arun Yogiraj, a Mysuru resident, created the statue, which was put in the temple’s sanctuary on Thursday.

The Ram Mandir has been decked with “rich stocks” of flowers and spectacular lighting.

Rituals started on January 16.

According to the temple trust, the consecration ceremonies for the ‘pran Pratishtha’ began on January 16 near the Saryu river and will end on Monday afternoon in the ‘abhijeet muhurta’.

Lakhs of people are expected to witness the ceremony live on television and internet platforms, with the national government declaring a half-day vacation and several states following suit.

Temples around the country have announced special celebrations for the occasion.
