Architectural Highlights of Ayodhya Ram Temple: A Celebration of Tradition and Devotion

The Ram Janmbhoomi Mandir, affectionately known as the Ram temple, is a splendid testament to cultural and religious heritage, crafted in the timeless Nagara style. Spanning an impressive length of 380 feet (east-west), a width of 250 feet, and reaching a majestic height of 161 feet, this architectural marvel stands as a beacon of devotion. Anchored by 392 pillars and adorned with 44 doors, the temple invites worshippers into a sacred space of divine artistry.

Within the hallowed walls, the pillars and surfaces unfold a tapestry of intricately sculpted depictions portraying Hindu deities, gods, and goddesses. At the heart of the temple, on the ground floor’s main sanctum sanctorum, resides the cherished idol of Ram Lalla.

The ‘pran pratishtha’ ceremony, slated to commence on Monday, holds special significance as fourteen couples from diverse regions of the country step forward as ‘yajmaans’ (hosts) for this sacred occasion. The new 51-inch idol of Ram Lalla, sculpted with devotion by Mysuru resident Arun Yogiraj, found its place in the sanctum sanctorum on Thursday, ushering in a spirit of divine presence.

Adorned with opulent embellishments, including “rich stocks” of flowers and radiant special lights, the Ram Mandir stands as a visual feast, reflecting the collective reverence of the faithful.

The journey to this momentous day began with the initiation of consecration rituals on January 16, symbolically starting from the banks of the Saryu river. This sacred journey reaches its crescendo on Monday afternoon, precisely timed within the auspicious ‘abhijeet muhurta,’ as declared by the temple trust.

As the nation eagerly awaits this historic event, millions are anticipated to tune in via live TV broadcasts and online platforms. The central government’s announcement of a half-day holiday, mirrored by several states, underscores the widespread importance of this celebration. Temples across the country are joining the jubilation, announcing special festivities to mark this joyous occasion.
