Ram Temple Inauguration: A Historic Moment

In a deeply significant ritual, the Prime Minister performed the final Vedic rites, symbolically opening the eyes of the Ram Lalla idol with a golden stick. The ceremony culminated with an aarti and shashtang pranam (prostration) to the deity. Adorned with a golden crown and ornaments, the 51-inch idol held a golden bow and arrow, epitomizing the grandeur of the occasion.

The event witnessed a confluence of eminent seers, religious leaders, political figures, celebrities, and industrialists, marking a historic milestone in India’s cultural and spiritual tapestry.

Continued Pilgrim Influx

Since its inauguration, the Ram Temple has become a focal point for devotees from across India and beyond, with a steady stream of pilgrims converging upon the sacred town of Ayodhya to pay homage and seek blessings.
