After 500 years, grand Holi will be celebrated in Ram Darbar, 'Ayodhya'

Ayodhya: For the first time in 500 years, Holi will be celebrated vigorously at the Ram Janmabhoomi Temple in Ayodhya. This is the first Holi when the statue of Ram Lala is installed not in a tent but in a temple. Acharya Satyendra Das, the chief priest of Ram Janmabhoomi Temple, said, "Ram Lala stayed inside a makeshift tent for three decades and was kept away from the festivities. He will bless devotees this year after the liberation of his birthplace."

Dr. Anil Mishra, a member of Temple Trust, said, "After the Mughal emperor Babar's commander Mir Baqi attacked the premises in 1528, the festival of Holi was not celebrated in a pompous and traditional manner here. After five hundred years, we will celebrate the festival of colors in the court of Ram Lala. A new era has begun." In the court of Ram Lala, natural colors and fragrant 'Gulal' will be used in the festival.

All parts of the temple complex will be decorated with flowers, brought from different corners of the country. The Ram Mandir Trust has started discussions with priests on rituals to be performed for Holi. The celebration will be doubled as the construction of the Ram Temple has also begun. The apex court had in November 2019 handed over the land for construction of Ram Mandir to Hindus, which was a long-pending disputed land.
