'Ram Lalla' Idol Installed In Ayodhya's Ram Mandir On Thursday, First Glimspe Shared

On the auspicious day of January 22, the 'Ram Lalla' idol will be consecrated at the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya. The idol, standing at a height of 51 inches and carved out of black rock, arrived last Wednesday in a splendid procession, captivating the devotees.


At precisely 1:28 PM on Thursday, the much-awaited moment arrived. The 'Shubh Muhurat' saw the installation of the 'Ram Lalla' idol in the sanctum sanctorum. The first glimpse of the idol was crafted by renowned artist Bhaskar Arun Yogi Raj from Karnataka.

But now that the idol's face and hands are covered with a yellow cloth and the chest part is covered with a white shawl, it has been revealed to the public. The unveiling will be on January 22.


The picture of ‘Ram Lalla’ was first taken by Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) media in-charge Sharad Sharma.

It's worth noting that the idol underwent meticulous craftsmanship by Bhaskar Arun Yogi Raj, who was initially chosen from three contenders. The final selection was made through a vote by members of the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teertha Kshetra Trust, responsible for the construction and maintenance of the Ram Mandir.

Reports suggest that after the consecration ceremony, special prayers were conducted by Vedic Brahmins and Acharyas, including members of the Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) and the Trust. The idol's installation has been accompanied by a series of rituals, emphasizing the sacredness of the occasion.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to grace the formal unveiling ceremony on Monday, along with an invitation extended to around 11,000 people from across the nation and abroad. Notably, the consecration event is set to witness the expertise of Chief Priest Lakshmikant Dixit and his team of priests.

Following the consecration, the doors of the Ram Mandir will open to the public on Tuesday, allowing devotees to witness the divine beauty of the 'Ram Lalla' idol in its new abode.
