GG News Bureau

Ayodhya, UP, 24th March. Sunday marked Ram Lalla’s first Holi celebration, months after the glorious Pran Pratishtha ceremony of Lord Ram at the Ram Mandir in the sacred city of Ayodhya.

The Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust posted images of devotees and Ram Lalla taking part in the festival of colors.


On January 22, a historic and magnificent ceremony known as Lord Ram’s Pran Pratishtha was held in the city center of Ayodhya. Along with Governor Anandiben Patel, Chief of the Rashtriya Sangh Paribas, and Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath, it was led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Given that it is thought to be the birthplace of Lord Ram, Ayodhya is one of the most important pilgrimage sites for Hindus. Adhering to the traditional Nagar architectural style, the temple’s construction has been overseen by the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra. With 380 feet of east-west length, 250 feet of width, and 161 feet of height, the temple is enormous.

The temple is said to be three stories high, with 44 doors and 392 pillars supporting each of the 20-foot-tall floors. The temple is divided into five rooms, or Mandaps: Rang Mandap, Sabha Mandap, Kirtan Mandap, Nritya Mandap, and Prarthna Mandap. The eastern entrance of the temple is reached by pilgrims climbing 32 steps via the Singh Dwar. Ramps and elevators are provided by the temple for the convenience of elderly and people with disabilities.

The temple is notable for having no iron at all. Four additional smaller temples honoring the Sun god, goddess Bhagwati, Lord Ganesha, and Lord Shiva surround the main temple; to the north is the Maa Annapurna temple, and to the south is the Hanuman temple. A 14-meter-thick layer of roller-compacted concrete (RCC) fortifies the temple’s foundation, giving it the appearance of real rock. A granite plinth 21 feet high has been built to protect against ground moisture.

Following a major victory in the long-running Ayodhya land dispute, on November 9, 2019, a five-judge bench led by then-CJI Ranjan Gogoi cleared the way for the construction of a temple at the disputed site. This marked the beginning of the historic temple’s construction. The verdict also required the city to allot a different five-acre plot for a mosque. In 2022, the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra projected that the construction of the magnificent temple would come with an approximate cost of ₹1,800 crore.
