Every year, during Diwali, people celebrate the symbolic return of Lord Ram by lighting lamps in homes and streets. This moving scene memorializes his triumph over the demon king Ravana and his return to Ayodhya following a 14-year banishment.
However, in a short while, the historic city of Ayodhya itself will resound with hymns, festivity, and unmatched happiness as it witnesses its momentous return — the opening of the Ayodhya Ram Mandir, also respectfully referred to as Ram Janmabhoomi.
There are just a few months until the Ayodhya Ram Mandir is completed, which means the building is almost complete.
- The Ram Mandir Construction Committee head, Nripendra Mishra, told the media on May 22, 2023, that the Ram Temple’s Phase I construction will be completed by December 30, 2023.
- The magnificent opening of this contemporary marvel is scheduled for January 24, 2024. Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other well-known individuals will supervise the rituals for the highly anticipated event on January 22, 2024.
- The idol of Ram Lalla will be placed in the temple’s sanctum sanctorum (garbha-griha) during the pran-partisha ceremony. On the other hand, starting on January 24, devotees will be able to enter the magnificent shrine.
On the occasion of the temple opening, invitations have been offered to venerated saints from all traditions and significant individuals who contribute to the country’s prestige. A Tent City has been created in the new Teerthakshetrapuram (Bag Bijaisi), which comprises six tubewell, six kitchen buildings, and a hospital with ten beds.
Approximately 150 doctors nationwide have agreed to work in rotation at this hospital. Langars, community kitchens, food distribution facilities, and eating spaces will be established around the town.
