Ram Lalla Idol Was Brought Today, Ayodhya Gears Up For The Grand Inauguration Of Ram Mandir

With the eyes of nearly 1.4 billion Indians fixed on Ayodhya, the anticipation for the grand unveiling of the Ram Mandir is palpable. The sacred land of Ayodhya, believed to be the birthplace of Lord Ram, is undergoing final preparations for the momentous occasion set to unfold in just four days.

Ayodhya, previously known as Saket, holds a historical significance that resonates with the spiritual heritage of India. The construction of the Ram Temple has captured the fervour and enthusiasm of devotees since its inception. Now, the countdown to the inauguration is in its final stretch.


The intricately carved idol of Ramlalla, crafted by the skilled hands of sculptor Arun Yogi Raj, is ready to be enshrined in the sanctum sanctorum on January 18, a day considered auspicious in the Hindu calendar. The idol, measuring about 51 inches in height, depicts Lord Ram in his childhood form, playing atop a lotus flower with a divine glow illuminating his serene face.

The culmination of years of dedication and hard work, the Ram Temple stands as a testament to the unity and faith of the people. The entire nation is gearing up for the grand celebration, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi scheduled to officiate the inauguration ceremony on January 22.

In the lead-up to the inauguration, a plethora of traditional rituals and ceremonies have been observed. Pilgrims from various parts of the country are converging on Ayodhya, with a joyous procession planned to showcase the idol of the young Lord Ram. The idol, resembling a five-year-old boy, is adorned with a charming smile, holding a bow and arrow in one hand and a lotus in the other.

The festivities extend beyond Ayodhya, with sacred soil and water from every corner of India brought to Ayodhya for the construction of the temple. The doors and pillars of the Ramlalla Temple will be adorned with golden engravings, adding to its grandeur.

As the final moments leading to the inauguration unfold, Ayodhya is witnessing a surge in devotees' excitement. Elaborate preparations include the lighting of a colossal lamp, standing at 108 feet, brought from Gujarat. Additionally, 56 different types of pedas and 1,265 kilogrammes of laddoos are being offered as part of the rituals.

The inauguration week also features various religious ceremonies, including a holy dip in the Sarayu River, Vishnu Puja, and the offering of prasad to the sacred cow. The festivities are set to continue until January 21.

Distinguished personalities, ranging from politicians like Amitabh Bachchan, Sachin Tendulkar, and Mahendra Singh Dhoni to scientists and spiritual leaders, will grace the event. With over 7,000 invitees, the Ram Temple inauguration promises to be a historic and spiritual event, uniting the nation in a joyous celebration.
