Ayodhya: The construction work of a grand temple of Lord Ram in Ramnagri Ayodhya is going on on a war footing. Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra shared pictures of the proposed 'sanctum sanctorum' of the Ram temple on Twitter on Friday, August 26. The sanctum sanctorum of the Ram temple is being constructed from 13,000 cubic feet of Makrana marble. CM Yogi Adityanath laid the foundation stone for the construction of the sanctum sanctorum of the temple in June. According to the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust, the sanctum sanctorum is expected to be completed by December 2023.
The completion of the sanctum sanctorum is the first of the three-phase construction plan of the Ram temple. The construction of this Ram temple is likely to be completed by the end of 2024 and the main construction of the temple complex is estimated to be completed by 2025. The trust has shared some pictures of the construction work. About 95 per cent of the work of the platform being built for the construction of lord Ramlala's temple has been completed. More than 17,000 stones have been used to make the platform of the temple of Ramlala.
The height of the platform will be 21 feet above the ground. The work of installing carved stones for the temple of Ramlala has also started. Acharya Satyendra Das, the chief priest of the Ram temple, told the media that the temple is being constructed in such a way that the first ray of the sun falls on the statue of Lord Ram.
