Ayodhya, January 23, 2024: Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressed his profound sentiments about the consecration ceremony of Lord Ram’s idol in Ayodhya on January 22, stating that the historic event will be etched in the collective memory for years to come.

In a social media post on Tuesday, Prime Minister Modi shared his thoughts on the monumental occasion, declaring, “What we saw in Ayodhya yesterday, 22nd January, will be etched in our memories for years to come.” Alongside his message, he also shared a video capturing poignant moments from the ‘pran pratishtha’ ceremony, where thousands of devotees chanted Lord Ram’s name, and a helicopter showered flower petals over the newly consecrated temple.

The consecration of the new Ram Lalla idol marked a significant milestone in Ayodhya on Monday. Prime Minister Modi led the landmark event and emphasized the importance of not only constructing the grand temple but also building the foundation of a “strong, capable, and divine” India for the next 1,000 years.

During the ceremony, the Prime Minister, adorned in a golden kurta, cream dhoti, and patka, walked inside the temple premises with a silver ‘chattar’ (umbrella) placed on a red folded dupatta. He took a solemn ‘sankalp’ for the ‘pran pratishtha’ ceremony and then proceeded to the sanctum sanctorum for the sacred rituals.

Inside the temple, Prime Minister Modi was joined by RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat, Uttar Pradesh Governor Anandiben Patel, and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. The rituals were conducted amidst an atmosphere of devotion, and army helicopters showered flower petals on the temple premises to mark the consecration.

On Tuesday, the doors of the Ram temple in Ayodhya opened to the general public. A video shared by news agency PTI showcased a heavy rush of devotees at the temple premises, eager to witness and seek blessings at the newly consecrated temple.

The grand Ram temple complex, built in the traditional Nagara style, spans 380 feet in length from east to west and 250 feet in width. The temple’s ‘shikhar’ is expected to rise to 161 feet eventually. Supported by 392 pillars and featuring 44 doors, the temple stands as a testament to the rich cultural and architectural heritage of Ayodhya.
