Ram temple in Ayodhya to open for public by Jan 2024 | India News


AYODHYA: The Ram temple in Ayodhya will be opened for devotees in January 2024 after the installation of Ram Lalla idol in the sanctum sanctorum on Makar Sankranti. Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust general secretary Champat Rai said on Tuesday, the temple will be earthquake-resistant and sturdy enough to last over 1,000 years.
The temple, which will have 392 pillars and 12 doors, is being constructed without using iron bars. Instead of iron, copper chips are being used to join stones, the trust members said.
The dimension of the main temple will be 350×250 ft, Rai said. On PM’s suggestion, a study is being done to assess the impact of the footfall on the five km-area around the temple once it is opened. The temple is being built at a cost of Rs 1,800 crore. Rai said that 50% of the construction work has been completed. “We are satisfied with the speed and the quality of the work being done,” he added.
The sanctum sanctorum will have 160 pillars while the first floor will have 82. In all, the structure will have 12 entry gates made of teak wood while a majestic main entrance, the ‘Singh Dwar’, on the first floor will lead to the ‘dance’, ‘colour’ and ‘esoteric’ pavilions.
Granite stones brought from Rajasthan are being used in the construction of the temple that spread over an area of 2.7 acres.
Project manager Jagdish Aphale said the sanctum sanctorum has been constructed in a way that sun rays fall on Ram Lalla’s statue on Ram Navami.
