The Ram Mandir's design, dating back to 1988, is a blend of tradition and skill. The Sompura family from Ahmedabad, known for their temple designs for generations, created it. Their new plan in 2020, based on ancient Hindu texts, will make this temple one of the world's largest Hindu shrines when finished.
The temple, in a style from Northern India, will cover 10 acres. Another 57 acres will have spaces like halls, a museum, and more for spiritual and cultural activities.
The temple's layout includes a raised platform holding a tall three-story building with five mandapas, decorated structures for different parts of worship. These will have special designs on top, with the tallest one over the sanctum.
Inside, there will be 366 columns, each with 16 idols showing different gods and goddesses. The temple will use sandstone from Rajasthan for its construction, focusing on keeping it traditional without using iron.
In a kind gesture, Thailand is sending soil from its land to honor the temple's inauguration. This gesture shows friendship and respect between different cultures.
As this special temple takes shape, it represents more than just a place of worship. It's a symbol of tradition, artistry, and spiritual devotion that will inspire people for years to come.
A Timeline of Ram Mandir's Construction Progress
The construction of the Ram Temple faced a pause due to the COVID-19 lockdown in India, but resumed after the initial setback. In March 2020, amidst the pandemic's challenges, the idol of Lord Ram was temporarily relocated in the presence of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.
To pave the way for the temple's construction, a special event called 'Vijay Mahamantra Jaap Anushthan' was organized by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad. People gathered at various places to chant the sacred mantra of "Shri Ram, Jai Ram, Jai Jai Ram" on April 6, 2020, seeking blessings for a smooth temple construction.
In a significant update, January 22, 2024, has been officially marked as the date for the installation of the Lord Ram idol in the Garbhagriha of the Ayodhya Ram Mandir. Champat Rai, the General Secretary of the Sri Ram Janmbhoomi Kshetra Trust, confirmed this important milestone. Additionally, Prime Minister Narendra Modi received a formal invitation on October 25, 2023, to attend the consecration ceremony of the majestic Ram Temple in Ayodhya, scheduled for January 22, 2024.
